Japan, Empire. An Order of the Sacred Treasure, V Class, c.1940

(Zuiho_sho). Instituted in 1888. Multi-piece construction, silver gilt with white and blue enamels, along with sixteen red glass cabochons, measuring 43.5 mm (w) x 48 mm (h) inclusive its laterally-pierced ball suspension, chipping and crazing evident in both the white enamels and the red glass cabochons, original triangular ribbon but missing its hook and eye, near fine.

 

Footnote: The Order of the Sacred Treasure is a Japanese order, established on January 4, 1888 by Emperor Meiji as the Order of Meiji. Originally awarded in eight classes (from 8th to 1st, in ascending order of importance), since 2003 it has been awarded in six classes, the lowest two medals being abolished that year. The most widely conferred Japanese order, it is awarded to those who have made distinguished achievements in research fields, business industries, healthcare, social work, state/local government fields or the improvement of life for handicapped/impaired persons. Originally a male-only decoration, the order has been made available to women since 1919. It is awarded for both civil and military merit, though of a lesser degree than that required for the conferment of the Order of the Rising Sun. Unlike most of its European counterparts, the order may be conferred posthumously.
