Miniature breast badge of a Companion of the Most Eminent Order of the Indian Empire


A good example of the miniature version of the CIE, 15cm high excluding ring, in silver gilt with enamels. This is the post 1901 example as the wording reads “Imperatoricis Auspiciis”. The wording was changed from “Victoria Imperatorix” on the death of the Queen Empress. Miniatures were made by jewellers rather than issued by the government so quality can vary greatly: this appears to be of very good quality and the enamel is undamaged. This version of the order is the style which would have been awarded at both the 1903 and the 1911 Delhi Durbars.
