Another example from 20s (most likely)
Two examples of ribbons from late 30s - early 40s (practically the same as the last one)
After war ribbon (from 60s).
Well, as we see it is pretty hard (visually) to distinguish between ribbons that were made after 1920.
They are all have pretty uniform hooks and eyes.
Visually silk looks practically the same.
Only red stripes become (with years) less and less rich.
Here comes this modern replacement ribbon (note the form and thickness of the eye ).
But one should always remember that cavalier could bought replacement ribbon for his order or medal.
Anytime he or she felt like doing so.
Here how this replacement ribbons (and original pockets for them) looked like.
Well, that`s all for today.
Maybe tomorrow we will talk about sacred treasure order ribbons
With those who will be not bored to death by this posting
Let`s talk about ribbons for Sacred Treasure Order.
Earlie ribbons have many very interesting color variations (consequences of different manufacturers that ignored official regulation?).
Here comes classical example of early ribbon from Meiji epoch (note the mint mark on the ball - unusual place for lower classes of sacred treasures).
Classical example of 6th class from 1895-1910 (approximately of course )
Note how different the "yellow" and "light blue" are looking...
Well, two specimens that we just saw are classical examples of early ribbons.
Now let`s examine eccentric ribbons.
Eccentric by their coloring
Here comes a nice example.
Is this really light blue? :)
