A smooth diamond-shaped decoration with pronounced corners and raised edges, constructed of silver. The obverse features a crowned, intertwined, and mirrored monogram ‘CA’.

The Honour Decoration for Laudable Deeds was instituted by Grand Duke Carl Alexander of Saxony-Weimar-Eisenach on July 19, 1871. It was supposed to be awarded to men and women who had performed meritorious services to the nation during the war of 1870/71. However, contrary to these statutes, it was only awarded to women.

Only citizens of Saxony-Weimar were supposed to receive the award, although exceptions were possible. The award did not have to be returned after the recipient’s death.
