Very Rare Antique Japanese Military Soldier Entering City Kutani Army Sake Bottle
This is an antique Japanese military sake bottle, decorated with a very nicely detailed picture of a Japanese soldier on a horse, entering a Chinese city gate. There are two Chinese kids waving Japanese flags welcoming the Japanese soldier - clearly a propaganda piece of some kind. The words on the bottom are "Kutani" and the name of the maker, Yukibana. This bottle is exceptionally painted and the details are very high.
