Description

Japan - Golden JiJi Shimpo medal. Awarded to the German pianist Wilhelm Kempff in 1936. Gold, silver, enamel. Reverse marked K 9 (9-carat gold), on a silk ribbon, in a wooden box. Also a letter of transfer/award, Tokyo dated 1936 and 2 large b/w photos. Kempff (1895-1991), the well-known German pianist, included in the "list of gods of grace" by Hitler. JiJi-Shimpo was a newspaper that was founded by a former samurai in the late 19th century and had a similar meaning to the "TIMES". Similar to e.g. the Krupp-Werke or SIEMENS in Germany and comparable to the "BAMBI" or other cultural prizes in the FRG gave JiJi- Shimpo official awards, even military ones (bronze badges and medals).

Only two more of these gold medals are known worldwide: 1. In the estate of the Russian master dancer / prima ballerina Anna Pavlova and in the estate of Lowell Smith, Pacific pilot in 1924 (National Air and Space Museum Washington DC.). More information is included.
