Silver order in the form of three pauwlonia leaves with three stems of three, five and three flowers, on laterally-pierced ball suspension; the face enamelled in green and mauve; the reverse unenamelled with a four-character inscription meaning ‘Order of Merit Decoration’; on replaced correct ribbon. The Order of the Rising Sun was Japan’s first decoration, being instituted by Council of State Decree on 10 April 1875 in eight classes to reward both military and civilian merit, the class awarded depending upon the rank of the recipient. The insignia is almost always enamelled on both sides but late in World War II a small number of privately-made examples were produced with a plain silver reverse.
