Description


Emperor of Japan (born 1901) from 1926 to his death in 1989. Following the devastating result of the atomic bombs dropped on Nagasaki and Hiroshima in World War II, he renounced his divinity in favor of a democratic constitutional monarchy. Incredibly scarce set of vintage matte-finish 8.5 x 12.75 three-quarter length portraits of Hirohito and Empress Nagako, beautifully signed in thick black ink in Japanese by the emperor and empress. In fine condition, with a small tear to the upper border of the Hirohito photo that could be easily matted out for pristine display. Accompanied by the original presentation folder, bearing an embossed Imperial Seal of Japan on the front. Few Hirohito portraits are made available to the collecting public, particularly those of this quality and size—this the largest Hirohito photo we have ever offered. Pre-certified John Reznikoff/PSA/DNA and RR Auction COA.
