Rare Antique Japanese Military Automobile Unit Kantogun Army Sake Bottle
This is a rare antique Japanese military sake bottle, decorated with a car with some cherry blossoms and a star. The words are "Victorious Return Commemoration" "Kanto Army Automobile Unit". The soldier's name Yoshikawa is on the bottom. Items with cars are actually quite rare - trucks are a little more common, but car drivers would suggest someone was working with officers, perhaps. The Kanto army was the Japanese unit stationed in Manchuria, the most aggressive of the military establishment and was pretty much responsible for starting the war with China.
