Bronze Incense Burner (Koro), Japan Featured Museum Objects Print

Bronze Incense Burner (Koro), Japan

This incense burner dates from around 1800 and is in the form of a Chinese boy (karako) reading a book. Karako is a Japanese term meaning 'Chinese child'. It generally refers to Chinese children as they are portrayed in Japanese art, though the literal translation specifically references the 'Tang children' of the Tang Dynasty [AD618-907]. The figures usually appear to be boys, wearing sets of conventional Chinese clothing and with their hair shaved and/or knotted in the traditional Tang style of this time. Karako are divine beings in Japanese mythology. They embody the innocence and joy of childhood and, as such, are often portrayed in scenarios where they are playing. Other interpretations find that karako are used to symbolise the wish to have a male successor who will gain high social status and also as a benevolent symbol which brings luck, happiness and prosperity.

Sardinian Medal for Valour, Crimean War 1854-1856

This medal was awarded to Brevet Lieutenant Colonel George Frederick Stevenson Call. It is one of 17 campaign medals awarded to members of the Call family, now in the museum collection. The medals date from the Peninsular War (1807-1814) to the Great War (1914-1918). The Call family served with the Royal Irish Regiment, which until 1881 was known as the 18th Regiment of Foot. It was also known as the 18th (Royal Irish) Regiment of Foot and the 18th (The Royal Irish) Regiment of Foot. The regiment was disbanded in 1922. King Victor Emmanuel II instituted the Sardinian Medal for Valour at the end of the Crimean War. It was to be presented to British officers and men of the Royal Navy and Army who had served with gallantry and distinction. 450 of these medals were issued to British soldiers. Known variously as the Sardinian Crimea medal and the Al Valore Militare, the medal is one of many honours and awards of the Crimean War period. On the obverse, the circular silver medal bears the arms of Savoy within a wreath of palm and laurel tied with a bow and the crown of Sardinia above, surrounded by the legend 'AL VALORE MILITARE' (for military valour). The reverse bears a laurel wreath surrounded by the inscription 'SPEDIZIONE D'ORIENTE 1855 1856'. The recipient's rank, name and regiment are inscribed in the centre. TRURI : 1931.40.49
