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.

Hi Nick,

Thanks again for his invaluable help.

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

    • Brian, Thanks for initiating this discussion. For me, it’s a combination of the thrill of the chase, the history behind the item, and the aesthetics, although this latter factor may seem a bit strange to some. To illustrate this, the very first thing I collected as a kid in the 1950’s was a Belgian WW1 medal, for service in 1914-18, which is bell shaped, with a very striking profile of a very dignified soldier, wearing an Adrian helmet which bears a laurel wreath. It was the image that
    • Thank you for sharing your story, it was most interesting and greatly appreciated, it makes this blog well worth the time to post. Regards Brian  
    • Hello I started collecting when I found my first Mauser cartridges in a field next to my parents' house next to Armentières. I was eight years old.  Then shrapnel, schrapnell balls, darts... That's how I became a historian. When I was 18, we used to walk through the fields with a metal detector to find our happiness. It was my time in the army as a research-writer in a research centre that made me love the orders of chivalry. I've been collecting them for 24 years now. Christophe
    • Thank you for your most interesting comment. The thrill of the chase didn't interest me in the beginning but over time it started to overshadow the act of simply adding yet another medal or group to the collection. Regards Brian  
    • I know the way I got into collecting is like so many other people; through a sibling. I also know that my love of history is barely unique in a place like this. So I know I have a shared background with many people. A less shared area - perhaps - is that I've always loved the thrill of the chase. When I decide I want, say, a 1914 trio with an original bar, to a cavalry unit, the utter thrill of getting out there and, (a) finding groups that fit the criteria and, (b) comparing them re: ranks, uni
