Would like to share this 8 place ribbon bar with a nice array of "regular" awards, followed on by some interesting foreign awards.

A Bavarian junior officer or NCO during WWI. Added "padding" to his rack with the addition of commemorative medals for WWI Hungary and Bulgaria.

The piece is dated to around 1939 with the KVK X being present in 2nd place. The foreign awards are the Japanese order of the Sacred Treasure and possibly the Swedish Vasa Order.

I think the owner of this bar could have been a foreign diplomat possibly.

Green ribbon may signify Italian Maurice & Lazarus, commander grade [gilt crown device on ribbon]. Sacred Treasure fairly rare on such bars. It looks well assembled--have you UV lighted it?

Hi,

It is ok under UV light. It does not glow.

It could be the Italian Order too, you are quite right, as they both use the same ribbon :)

Best Regards

Alan

The penultimate ribbon (7) could be a Spanish decoration: Knight's Cross of the Order of Isabel la Católica
