Dear All

I am becoming quite frustrated in my attempts to purchase ribbon and/or ribbon devices for several medals I want to mount. I am sure you all know the story ! The Association of Members of the Order tell me to contact Spink because they are the suppliers. Spink tell me (or are just not interested!) to contact Toye & Kenning who tell me contact someone else who tell me to contact Spink who tell me to contact Gardino in Rome.

Does anyone know -

1. a website for Gardino in Rome ?

2. a company who can supply ribbon and ribbon devices for medals from Belgium, Italy, France & Poland?

3. where I can get lengths of ribbon (to court mount) US medals? Everyone seems to have pre-packaged ribbon bars but no ribbon.

4. Would it be ok if I posted a list of my needs here to see if anyone has the bits and pieces I am looking for?

5. Where can I get the enamel of an Order repaired ?

Thanks,

Greg.

(In Australia)

Hello Greg,for ribbon you can contact Frederic de Perier in France (he is the biggest french ribbon dealer) and he has a lot of worldwide ribbon : de.perier@free.fr

To do enamel repair is difficult,and in most of the case the result isn't what you expected....(I mean in quality).
