Rare Antique Japanese Military Naval Air Service Fixed Wing Fighter Battleship Navy Sake Bottle
This is a rare antique Japanese military sake bottle, decorated with a profile of a battleship, in front of a helmet shape map of Japan, Korea, and the coastline of China with a plane on the spot where Shanghai would be. There's also a fixed-wing plane on top - this is probably the Mitsubishi A5M "Claude", since it was the main fighter in China during fighting over Shanghai and the only fixed-wing fighter for the navy before the Zero, which was too late for Shanghai. There are colored and embossed cherry blossoms on the bottle, and on the back are the words "Term Fulfillment Commemoration".
