Regular price $14.99

This is an antique Japanese military sake cup, decorated with a flag, a crane, and some cherry blossoms. The words are "Qingdao Garrison Commemoration" "6th Infantry". The soldier's name Arakawa is on the back. Japan owned Qingdao after winning in WW1, but was forced to give it back in the early 1920s - so it only possessed it for a few years when this cup could've been made.

Condition: Excellent - some fading of the gold

Size: 3" across
