Rare Antique Japanese 1932 Shanghai Military Hospital Victory Army Sake Cup
This is an antique Japanese military sake cup, decorated with a pair of flags and a star, with one of the flags having a red cross on it. The words are "Shanghai Station Hospital" "Victorious Return Commemoration". This is in reference to the brief invasion of Shanghai in 1932 when Japan fought China in a limited war before establishing Manchukuo. This is the first time I've come across a cup for the military hospital for this campaign. The soldier's name Atagi is on the back.
Condition: Excellent - very light fading of the gold
Size: 2" across
