N015580 SECOND PATTERN "DEUTSCHES FRAUNENSCHAFT" MEMBERSHIP BADGE. (Mitgliedabzeichen)

BACKGROUND: The "Nat. Soz. Frauenschaft" (National Socialist Women’s-organization) was formed by absorbing the earlier "Deutsches Frauenwerk" (German Women’s-welfare-organization), and the "Deutscher Frauenorden" (German Women’s-order), into a single national organization. The first pattern Frauenschaft member’s badge followed the design of the earlier "Deutscher Frauenorden" badge as introduced in the mid-1920s, with minor variations. In 1938 the first pattern badge was replaced with a modified second pattern member’s badge, which followed the design of the earlier "Deutsches Frauenwerk" badge.

PHYSICAL DESCRIPTION: The alloy badge takes the form of a 23mm tall inverted triangle whose top edge is 24mm wide. It features a black enameled central field, edged in silver, upon which is a silver washed mobile sunwheel swastika above a "Leben-rune" (Life-rune). The top silvered edge of the badge is wider than the sides and features the red enameled Gothic script, "Deutsches Frauenwerk." To the reverse, to either side of its vertical pin-back device, is an embossed RZM logo and an "M1/109" manufacturer’s code for "Glaser & Sohn, Dresden".
