Please note that it is bronze gilt, so it must be a wearers copy or a later production. I believe it to be manufactured post 1918 but the exact date is unknown.
Could be a later Rothe or any other firm...
The ribbon is correct, it is moire silk, but it is definitelypost 1945 sewed as it can be seen from its hook.
Overall a very nice item!
