    I picked up this Knight 1st Class of the Zahringen Lion several years ago. It has a French style rosette on the ribbon. Both the ribbon and rosette are nicely aged and appear to be period. I haven't been able to find anything in the references on this type of ribbon device for the Zahringen. Perhaps a foreign recipient?

    Aha, you got that one. I remember when it was offered, some years ago...

    There never was such a rosette for the Z?hringer Lion order, so I assume it was a foreign recipient. Actually, it is not even a proper Z?hringer ribbon.

    However, very nice and interresting one. Does the cross have any hallmarks?

    No marks that I can find. It does test as gold and appears to be typical of ca. 1890 - 1910 German manufacture. Only the ribbon makes it unusual.

    Very correct in any point. The cross is absolutely text book for about the 1900 era.
