VIVAT RIBBON – KAISER WILHELM II AND THE KAISERLICHE MARINE

SKU: 36-117

This is a Vivat Ribbon commemorating Kaiser Wilhelm II and the Kaiserliche Marine. The Vivat shows a Kriegsflagge at the top. Below that is a circular panel featuring a WW I-era German warship with the dates 1683-1914, along with Hohenzollern shields above it. Another circular panel shows the Kaiser and, I believe, Frederick III (a.k.a.) Frederick I, the Prince Elector of Brandenburg (upon his death he would be succeeded by Frederick the Great). The final circular panel shows a warship from the 1680’s. At this time Prussia was a second-rate (at best) naval power, unable to match the might of Great Britain or Spain. It is a very decorative Vivat. The ribbon is white in color. It measures 16 1/8″ x 2 1/2.” Vivats were authorized under the auspices of the German Red Cross, with part of the proceeds to benefit their work. $55.00
