    Very nice. I have always liked those buttonhole ribbon bows and -rolls. (See here for mine:

    Nice combination, I've never seen this configuration of ribbon, would it be called a Bandrollen or something else?

    No, this one would be classified as a Bandschleife [ribbon bow].

    A Bandrolle [ribbon roll] would have the three miniature ribbons rolled up and next to one another, almost like a miniature ribbon bar.

    Example:

    Thanks for the replies.
    I wondered what the correct name for them was!

    Thanks Andreas,
    I wasn't sure as they look more rolled than bow shape.

    Nice trio. I'm guessing this would be called a Bandschleife (Ribbon bow) as above.

    Yes; that's right.

    By the way, it's of a type whose manufacture and sale was no more permitted by later regulations, which specified that no more than one ribbon was allowed to be worked into a Bandschleife (while a Bandrolle could hold up to three) and that a combination of miniature metal decorations/badges with a Bandschleife was not allowed.

    [I don't know the date for these regulations, but the allowed and prohibited types of buttonhole miniatures are explained nicely in the final (1945!) edition of Dr. Doehle's "Die Auszeichnungen des Gro├čdeutschen Reiches", which is available as a reprint.]
