St. Stanislaus 3rd Class w/swords on bow

Hello;

 

I don't think I posted my St. Stanislaus 3rdK w/S on a bow. 

 

The reverse has the Eduard maker mark.  The photos don't properly show how "buttery" the yellow gold looks.  I was once told that that was an indication of higher gold content, but there are no hallmarks to give a gold carat amount.

 

The cross is on a ribbon in a bow, which I think is odd for an order w/swords.  A St. Stan without without swords would suggest an awarding to a woman.  But with swords it was likely awarded to a gentleman and the mounting would be entirely different.  

 

The last odd finding is the mounting.  It looks like it was glued to a black, felt-like material.  But it might have been the collector that owned it before me who glued it to his collection board.  If I was sure I would try to remove it.  Could it have been glued to the original owner's black felt coat?  But I have never heard of attaching awards this way.  

 

thoughts?

This order was made after September 10, 1916 in gilded bronze.

Since 1857 military personnel awarded with the Order of Saint Stanislaus 3rd class with swords wore it on a bow.

Could be a reminiscence of original bow. But most likely ribbon was folded this way for display case.
