RDK Abzeichen
These small animal exhibitions were held in the large exhibition grounds in Leipzig and the animals shown ranged from small animals like rabbits through very large birds the size of peacocks. The Honor Prize given in all animal categories was apparently this one featuring a large fowl with a long tail on one side and a swastika on the other.
The large medallion is made of very fine white porcelain and consists of a wide border in the form of an oak leaf wreath containing a flat white surface. On one side is a nearly 3 inch raised swastika in outline form beneath the letter R.D.K. and above the wording REICHSFACHGRUPPEN-EHRENPREIS (National Specialty Group Honor Prize).
On the opposite side is a beautifully rendered high relief image of a splendid fowl standing atop a column.
From the work that went into making it, and the striking appearance of this medallion, it was certainly a coveted national German award in the home of any animal breeder to whom it was given. There is a tiny hole at the bottom of the wreath along the top side on the swastika side that made it possible to hang the award from a small nail on a wall, or it could be displayed on a table.    See photo right.

Very fine original condition, no chips or cracks.  The RDK Abzeichen shown left is for reference only.
