1902 Chinese 8 Nation Tientsin Provisional Government Medal - Boxer Rebellion For Sale
1902 CHINESE 8 NATION TIENTSIN PROVISIONAL GOVERNMENT MEDAL - BOXER REBELLION
With the end of the Boxer Rebellion aneight nation provisional government handed control ofTientsin back to China.
To commemorate thispeace a special medal was issued and it's this medal thatwe're selling today.
Believed to be made in coated silver this large (5.2cm across) medal is marked by the maker Tenshodo.
It featuresseven of the eight countries involved Flag's (China excluded)in enamel on one side with their government title and dates around the edge while on the rear are words in Chinese with laurel leaves.
The previous owner of this medalactually wrote to the British Museum about it and found that they didn't have an example!
Because of this it was sent to the Museum and photographed with their thoughts being it was issued as the provisional government left (most likely to soldiers who served against the rebellion).
We will include these letters with the medal as well as a handsome box which it doesn't seem to fit but was said to always have been in.
