Why is this Bavarian Ribbon so Gigantic?

Hi,

This is for a neck award. It is possible to have size of the ribbon please ?

 

Christophe

It looks like just under 5 1/2 cm.

Do you think it’s the Neck Ribbon then? It doesn't have a tie.

Too big to be a knight cross ribbon. Probably a neck ribbon which has never been worn. Have you made uv test to know if it is original or not ?

I haven’t. Though what type of bulb should I get for such a test. I should get one.

Christophe is correct, it looks like a ribbon for the commanders cross which if real, is not a bad catch.

Kind regards,

Sandro

Thanks for the reference! Well mine doesn't have that watered look that your has. Also the blue stripes on mine are a lot wider. I don't have a UV bulb to test it but the material doesn't feel like silk. And the edges have a different weave to them. I am guessing it is an old replacement ribbon?

Well possible, based on your description, but hard to say without having it in hand. It may still be good to do a blacklight test - if the ribbon fails that, that is a strong indication of post WWI (and probably post WWII, although that is debated)  manufacture.

    • 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 .
