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

    • Sounds great other than the Orange & Mango squash only because I prefer cran-pomegranate juice.
    • "(...) disgusting herbal concoction (...)" I took note of this description, to enrich my otherwise limited, English "Wortschatz"...
    • At work the standard indian tea such as PG tips is referred to as chimp tea. This goes back to the days when we had a Spanish girl working for us whose command of the English language was extremely limited. One lunch she said she was going to the shop could she get anything. I asked if she could get a pack of tea bags. She returned with some disgusting herbal concoction. I tried to explain what was required but without success. I then remembered PG tips had a picture of a chimpanzee on the packe
    • When I read Lapsang Souchong i decided to post something about these Tea . Many years ago I dont  know about Lapsang until I read James Michener book Centennial and the description of the savour of the Lapasang as a mix of tar and salt & smoked made me proof . It was exact ! and i liked it since then .
    • I have been known to drink Lapsang Souchong and Tea, Earl Grey, Hot... both "without pollutants". I normally have one mug of coffee in the morning, then spend the rest of the day drinking Orange & Mango squash (by the pint). Then evening comes and it's a pint, followed by red wine with dinner and sometimes a drop of Laphroaig afterwards.
