Miniatures of Japanese Orders and Medals

141 posts in this topic

A nice group with a Japanese WW1 Victory medal which is quite rarely seen as miniature. I would say it's most likely a mid war group from a Japanese diplomat, appr around 1920-30?

Photos of some miniatures of Japanese Orders and Medals. They were awarded to a Brazilian Admiral of the First World War.Unfortunately they are not mine. Note that there are some rare medals.

Perhaps Mrs. Admiral received the medal as well?

It is probable that it was Vice-Admiral Carlos Augusto Gaston Lavigne.

Looks like a match!!  First image I've seen of a Brazilian wearing the 1920 Belgian Medal of the Royal Visit to Brazil.  Have you details of his Japanese involvement?

Unfortunately I do not have...

Here is another photo: Admiral Henrique Aristides Guilhem  in 1939. (No Japanese medals and orders. Just the example of Medal of the Royal Visit to Brazil)

Thank you--See he received a Leopold with swords, perhaps during the visit?
