Rare Antique Japanese Military Photo Transfer General Oshima Kutani Army Sake Cup
This is an antique Japanese military sake cup, decorated with a photo-transfer picture of Lieutenant General Oshima, a staff member of the First Army during the Russo Japanese war.

The words on the front are "Lieutenant General Oshima" and on the back "Sole-sale permission Kutani Hayashiya"
