B. 21,4 cm, H. 12,5 cm, T. 5,0 cm

Die große Brustschleife wurde am 25.11.2019 aus dem Juwelenzimmer des Historischen Grünen Gewölbes entwendet.

Schmuckschleifen dieser Art, die unterhalb des Ausschnittes getragen wurden, dienten bis in die Zeit um 1800 als höfischer Damenschmuck. 1782 ließ Kurfürst Friedrich August III. die Brustschleife mit ungewöhnlich reichem Diamantbesatz für seine Gemahlin Amalie Auguste herstellen. Das Geschenk, das wohl aus Anlass der Geburt ihres ersten Kindes entstand, wurde dem offiziellen Repräsentationsschmuck des Hauses Wettin zugeordnet und damit Bestandteil des Grünen Gewölbes. Zur Herstellung griff man auf Diamanten zurück, die von 27 Rockknöpfen und 12 Westenknöpfen sowie aus weiteren Schmuckstücken der überkommenen Brillantgarnitur stammten.
Die Brustschleife ist als ein plastisch gearbeitetes, gerafft erscheinendes Band mit herabhängenden Endstücken geformt. Das Zentrum des breiten Schmuckstückes bildet der, in seiner ursprünglichen Kastenfassung erhaltene, Hemdenknopf der Brillantgarnitur. Insgesamt ist die Schleife mit 51 großen sowie 611 mittleren bis kleinen Brillanten besetzt. Das Gesamtgewicht der verwendeten Brillanten beträgt ca. 614 Karat. Die prachtvolle Brustschleife wiegt mit Fassung 556 g, was sicherlich den Tragekomfort als Schmuck etwas eingeschränkte. Doch noch von Königin Carola von Sachsen wurde die Brustschleife in den 70er und 80er Jahren des 19. Jahrhunderts gelegentlich zu höfischen Veranstaltungen getragen.

Große Brustschleife aus dem Schmuck der Königinnen Large breast bow from the jewelry of the queens

The large breast bow was stolen from the jewel room of the historic Green Vault on November 25th, 2019. Decorative bows of this type, which were worn below the neckline, served as courtly women’s jewelery until around 1800. In 1782 Elector Friedrich August III. make the breast bow with an unusually rich diamond trimming for his wife Amalie Auguste. The gift, which was probably created on the occasion of the birth of her first child, was assigned to the official representative jewelery of the House of Wettin and was thus part of the Green Vault. Diamonds were used for the production, which came from 27 coat buttons and 12 waistcoat buttons as well as from other pieces of jewelery from the traditional set of diamonds. The breast bow is shaped as a three-dimensional, gathered-appearing band with hanging end pieces.

The shirt button of the diamond set, which has been preserved in its original box setting, forms the center of the wide piece of jewellery.

The loop is set with a total of 51 large and 611 medium to small diamonds. The total weight of the diamonds used is approx. 614 carats. The magnificent breast bow weighs 556 g with the setting, which certainly limited the wearing comfort as a piece of jewelry. However, Queen Carola of Saxony still occasionally wore the breast bow to court events in the 1970s and 80s.

Burglary in the Historic Green Vault

A significant part of the loot was seized

On the night of December 16th to 17th, 2022 in Berlin, the Dresden public prosecutor, Soko Epaulette and the LKA Sachsen seized a significant part of the stolen goods stolen during the break-in into the Green Vault.

After an initial inspection, there are 31 individual pieces, including several pieces that appear to be complete, such as the hat decoration (heron tail) and the breast star of the Polish Order of the White Eagle from the diamond set.

Among other things, the epaulette with the „Saxon White“ that was damaged during the theft and the large breast bow of Queen Amalie Auguste are missing.

The secured items were transferred to Dresden under the protection of special police forces and will first be examined there forensically and then by specialists from the Dresden State Art Collections to ensure their authenticity and completeness.

This was preceded by exploratory talks between the defense and the public prosecutor’s office, including the court, on a possible settlement of the procedure and the return of any booty that was still there. Everything else must be reserved for the further course of the main hearing, which will continue on Tuesday, December 20th, 2022. Further information is therefore currently not possible.

The discovery comes during the trial of six suspects over the raid of the Green Vault museum. The trial was opened in January and is set to resume on Tuesday.

„Exploratory talks“ between defense and the prosecution toward the return of the stolen items led to a breakthrough, police and prosecutors said, without providing further information.

Special police have escorted the retrieved items from Berlin back to Dresden, where experts will verify them for their authenticity.

The six suspects, aged between 22 and 28, are accused of severe gang theft and arson. All of them allegedly belong to Berlin’s „Remmo“ clan.

Allerdings gibt es noch einen weiteren Knackpunkt: Denn wie die berichtet wird, ist die zurückgegebene Beute ist offenbar ramponiert. Sie sei erlegt und geplündert. Nur wenige der zurückgegebenen Schmuckstücke schienen vollständig, manche Stücke fehlen ganz. Die Zeitung zitiert , wonach der Schmuck Wasserschäden habe, die Restaurierung sei nur unter großem Aufwand möglich.

Eine offizielle Bestätigung dafür gab es nicht. Experten der Staatlichen Kunstsammlungen Dresden (SKD) nehmen die Beutestücke weiter unter die Lupe. Dabei seien etwa eine Restauratorin und eine Sammlungsverwalterin, hieß es. Wo genau die Juwelen und Schmuckstücke untersucht werden, darüber machten die SKD keine Angaben. Auch wann mögliche Ergebnisse präsentiert werden sollen, blieb zunächst offen. Im Landeskriminalamt (LKA) Sachsen wurden die Beutestücke nach Angaben eines Sprechers bereits kriminaltechnisch untersucht.
