These minis, are they mainly for wear on civilian clothing or are they for serving military to wear on a mess kit?

 

I think for both occasions ;)

JapanX,

 

Thanks for this information. Looks like I'm now going to have to add Russian Federation miniature ribbons to my ribbon collection.

Does anyone know a source for these miniature ribbons?

Hi Jean-Paul,

 

the only (known to me) manufacturer of this rosettes is moscow company "Symbol of Capital".

Unlike MMД made miniatures these are available for everyone ...

The company doesn`t has an internet store.

I think prerry soon they will surface at russian Molotok and then at eBay.

 

Regards,

Nick

Like I said, those rosettes are really nice, I think they'll definitely find a niche in the collecting community.

The small versions (PINBACK, no more nasty clothes-destroying screws! :jumping: ) are certainly neater and more elegant than the "human pincushion" look so beloved since tsarist times.

 

But why are they so EXPENSIVE? Surely the full-sized versions do not cost that to make, now that nothing is real gold or real silver or real enamel any more.

 

All togetheer mounted medal bars would be nice.

As we see the diameter of these miniatures is only 13 mm.
 
Trial pieces?
At least that is how they should look like ;)
