Unusual document for the enthronement of Emperor Taisho ... what is it?


Recommended Posts

Hi all,

I know well as all of you the document (diploma) given with the coronation medal of Emperor Taisho but I did not know this kind of document in "hanging scroll".

It seems to me that this document is nominative, can you confirm that ?, and tell me to whom it was assigned to ?

Can you tell me in the main lines what the text says under the photocopy of the diploma and inside the small frame at the bottom of the document?

Could each recipient of the enthronement medal claim to receive this type of document ??

or is it a personal purchase from the recipient? ................or is this a special distinction or recognition on the part of the Emperor?

 


Thank you for your kind assistance.
Patout

Hi Nick,

Thanks again for his invaluable help.

It seems to me that this document is quite rare? What do you think about that ?

This is not the actual document, but the scroll with the image of the document. Such scrolls were sold to the cavaliers of the medal unfilled (i.e. without the document number and the name of the cavalier) so they can proundly display them on holidays at home.

 

Best,

Nick

    • I like my tea strong enough for my spoon to stand up in. My father got me into it. When my father was at RAF Dum Dum 1943-47 most of his fellow officers drank ice cold drinks to mitigate  the heat, his Sikh batman warned him against it and said that strong hot tea would cool him down, most certainly did. So years later in the UK when everybody else was drinking iced drinks on a baking day the wood family was inbibing copious quantities of hot strong brews of Assam's finest. P
    • Hi ccj, Thanks for your comments. Funny how, for me at least, coffee has become a habit more than a conscience choice. It's the old, "Well if you having one (coffee) pour me as well". When I get together with my son-in-law, a former Brit, it's tea all the way. Thanks again. Regards Brian  
    • I live and grew up in the south (USA) and the drink of choice 7 days a week was cold sweet tea. I was unaware Lipton was British because that’s what most southern use for brewing tea. When I joined the army I learned most people in the north and western parts of the USA drank unsweetened tea and that was perplexing to my young brain. Now days I can’t stand sweet iced tea but it’s still the most common drink in the south, but, you can get unsweetened ice tea in the south. Im familiar with ho
    • I drink tea every day (Chinese tea), I used to buy Sri Lankan black tea at the fair before, it was great! I have been reluctant to drink them all. . The tea I’m talking about is just brewing water, not adding other substancesI
    • Thanks for your reply Patrick, just in case some might not know what the Belgian WW1 Medal you were referencing looks like I have included one here. I understand that the small crown on the ribbon denoted the recipient was a volunteer.
