The 1914/1918 Ehrenkreuz

Article about: by danhashman There are those little crossed swords on the ribbon. Is there something to tell about that? I often see Ehrenkreuze whose ribbons have no little swords attached to it, i guess

    That enamel ribbon bar is fascinating Andreas, I've never come across any German award ribbons represented as such. A rare piece, thank you for posting it.

    Another recent purchase, somewhat more robust than the last one...: A Kriegsteilnehmer cross made into a paperweight by affixing it to a square piece of black marble.

    (Personally, I think this was done in the period, but I cannot completely rule out that somebody got creative post-war. I like it anyway):

    That's an interesting and unusual addition to your collection of Ehrenkreuz! I like it alot and it certainly has the look of a period made piece.

    It looks very striking against that black marble, nice addition

    Here are two rather neat examples for combinations of 15 mm miniatures for civilian wear.

    The first is a Prussian non-combatant's ribbon bar with attached miniature pendants representing, from left to right: the Rote-Kreuz-Medaille III. Klasse, the Verdienstkreuz für Kriegshilfe and the Kriegsteilnehmer cross.

    Typically worn with formal dress, the second one is a medal chain (Ordenskettchen) for a Saxon combat veteran NCO. The medals are, from left to right, the Frontkämpfer cross, Friedrich-August-Medaille in Silber, Militär-St.-Heinrichs-Medaille in Silber and the 1914 EK2.

    The last few weeks have been good... A few more ribbon bars, all done in the "Bavarian fold".

    First, one example each for the Kriegsteilnehmer and the Frontkämpfer cross:

    Second, two examples of the Kriegsteilnehmer cross in combination with a "Flower War Medal"; on top it's the Medaille zur Erinnerung an den 1. Oktober 1938 (the Sudetenland Anschluss), on bottom the Medaille zur Erinnerung an den 13. März 1938 (the Austrian Anschluss):
