Antique Japanese Military 1909 Army Academy Lieutenant Lacquer Sake Cup

Regular price $34.99

This is an antique Japanese military sake cup, decorated with a double star of the army academies, and the words around it are "Gift to Army Private First Class Nakayama Kikuzo" and from "Army Infantry Lieutenant 7th Rank 5th Class (Rising Sun) 5th Class (Golden Kite) Nakajima Seiroku". I'd imagine this is probably a graduation gift from the instructor officer to a student, or something along those lines. The exterior of the box has the words "Meiji 42nd Year" and a label under the lid for the maker of the box, located in Tottori.

Condition: Mint. The box is somewhat damaged on the back and lid with a few base sticks missing

Size: 4.75" across
