Sold by Delta 98 Den Haag: a silver medal by Richard Adolf Zutt

 although our collection of art medals 

is mainly about Dutch medals made in the 20th Century,

we, once in a while, can not resist to buy a foreign medal, because it is just beautiful, like this one:

a rare, silver medal, designed in 1914, by:

Richard Adolf Zutt

born 1887 in Basel and died 1938 in Suez

we see a kneeling, winged female figure protecting three children,
with above her right shoulder the lettering:
on the reverse the crown of Saint Stephen, the Hungarian coat of arms, with three angels' heads above and two torches facing downwards to the sides

with the Hungarian text:
Nem Hagylak Titeket Arvakul Eljo Vok Ti Hozzatok Janos XIV
I will not leave you orphans, I will come to you,
a biblical text from John 14:18
A Hadsegelyezo Hivatal az Arvaknak 1915,
the Military refief Office for Orphans
A.1914D, for Anno Domino, the year 1914,

diameter circa 68,5mm
