NEPAL - Nepalese Royal ribbon bars

Recommended Posts

Dear all, 

I have recently acquired this set of 15 ribbon bars I am presenting to you. As you can appreciate, the holder received the Pratapa Baskara Decoration, reserved for members of the Royal Family, as well as all the other Royal Orders of Nepal. 

I have been able to identify most of the pieces but have been unsuccessful finding the two (?) medals and the name, title and military rank of the holder. As an interesting info, the Orders ribbons are a bit larger than the medals ribbons, but the ribbons of the last medals row are smaller than the first medal ribbons row. I hope you will enjoy seeing this piece and I would be grateful for any extra information/identifications regarding this set. 

1. Pratapa Baskara Decoration
2. Order of the Ojaswi Rajanya
3. King Thribhuvan Order of Democracy
4. Order of Nepal Shripada
5. Order of the Star of Nepal
6. Order of Tri Shakti Patta
7. Order of the Gurkha 
8. Guards Long Service Decoration 
9. King Birendra Coronation Medal 
10. King Mahendra Coronation Medal 
11. (?)
12. King Birendra Silver Jubilee Medal

Hello Gentlemen,

For those who know me, they might know, that I do not collect ribbon bar, but when I see one, that is exceptionnal, as every collector, it's hard to resist.

Almost all similar ribbon than the bar above, but this person, was awarded the OM RAM PATTA (second row of ribbon at right hand side) + on the last 2 rows, british era ribbon and some foreign (ie Royal Victorian Medal, Spain Order Isabel Catolica, Denmark Order Dannebrog, ?? UK Army LSGC ??, MBE (or OBE) Military Div, Egypt Order of the Republic, WWI Interallied Victory Medal, Federal Republic Germany Order of Merit).

Note on reverse upper & lower rows the safety pin to hook on uniform.

We know Ernest Blass had travel to Nepal, but did he bought stocks from military outlifters in Kathmandu ?

I bought this ribbon bar from a german web site, well active in 2010 to 2015, and who was selling a lot of items from Ernst Blass collection.

Regards to all.

     Emmanuel
