Very Rare Antique Japanese Military 1922 Battleship Hyuga Crown Prince Navy Sake Cup
This is an antique Japanese military sake cup, decorated with a banner of the crown prince of the empire. The words on the back are "warship Hyuga" "Taisho 11th Year" "His Imperial Highness The Crown Prince Review Vessel Commemoration". This would be for a naval fleet review, and the Hyuga was serving as the imperial vessel that carried the future emperor Showa (he was the crown prince at the time and did all the imperial functions as the Taisho emperor was incapacitated).
