Hi Alexandre,

I am not an expert but if these are all neck orders like i think they are then i do not think they would be on the ribbon bar. I would ask one of the Imperial experts to verify this. :cheers:

My best

Hello Alexandre:

While not an expert, I will share the following:

Officially, the representations of these classes of these particular awards were not worn on a field ribbon bar. However, there were always exceptions, and examples are known of some very high ranking German Officers (usually with connections to various ruling houses) wearing the ribbon of a particular Order on their field ribbon bar with a miniature representation of the higher class (neck class of the Order or sash class of the Order) on the ribbon in the style that was popular (and Officially sanctioned) with Austrian Officers. I recall in particular a field ribbon bar that I have seen which had Saxon Orders (SEHO, etc.) on it that may have been in the Seymour collection and later passed through the Thies auction. Perhaps GMIC member Deruelle will have a better recollection regarding that particular example. He IS an expert regarding the awards of Saxony and Thuringian States.

Best regards,

Yes for example Friedrich, Prince of Waldeck and Pyrmont...note the breast star device of the House Order on his ribbon bars!

Hello Pierce:

Thank you for providing this excellent example! The Order ribbon with the device is for an Austrian Order of the Iron Crown award. So, here is an example of a German Officer wearing an Austrian award in the Austrian fashion.

    • Two years down the line.   My mother-in-law passed away this summer, as did one of her sisters-in-law.   My exhibition opened, and we had a marvellous speakers' night with four Peacekeeping veterans, including a Meritorious Service Medal winner.  But Covid closed it down in March 2020, and while still there it hasn't reopened.
    • Sounds great other than the Orange & Mango squash only because I prefer cran-pomegranate juice.
    • "(...) disgusting herbal concoction (...)" I took note of this description, to enrich my otherwise limited, English "Wortschatz"...
    • At work the standard indian tea such as PG tips is referred to as chimp tea. This goes back to the days when we had a Spanish girl working for us whose command of the English language was extremely limited. One lunch she said she was going to the shop could she get anything. I asked if she could get a pack of tea bags. She returned with some disgusting herbal concoction. I tried to explain what was required but without success. I then remembered PG tips had a picture of a chimpanzee on the packe
    • When I read Lapsang Souchong i decided to post something about these Tea . Many years ago I dont  know about Lapsang until I read James Michener book Centennial and the description of the savour of the Lapasang as a mix of tar and salt & smoked made me proof . It was exact ! and i liked it since then .
