Vintage Selassie ERA medals and collectables available on ETSY

The Order of the Star of Ethiopia available @ www.rastadrums.com

The Order of the Star of Ethiopia was founded by Emperor Menelik II in 1884-85,
in his capacity as Negus of Shoa, and before he became Emperor of Ethiopia (in
1889). It is one of the older awards in the Imperial pantheon.

Gilt metal five-pointed star, the lower two arms joined, on a suspension of a Europeanised Ethiopian coronet; the face with a traditional Ethiopian filigree shield pattern with raised central boss; the reverse plain with maker’s mark ‘MADE IN ETHIOPIA / B.A. SEVADJIAN’; on original ribbon. The Order of the Star of Ethiopia was founded by Emperor Menelik II in 1884-85 when he was Negus (King) of Shoa and prior to his becoming Emperor of Ethiopia in 1889, and is said to be based on an older award. It was awarded in five grades of which the present example is ‘knight’. Prior to the overthrow of the Ethiopian monarchy in 1974, the Order was made by B. A. Sevadjian of Addis Ababa, apart from the period of Italian occupation from 1936 to 1941 when it was made by Mappin and Webb in London. A good example.
