Sake Cup-0007 "Field Artillery Discharge Commemorative"
This beautiful sake cup measures approximately 2.75″ across. The inside has a beautiful red, white and gold leaf painted crane winging overhead. Just below it are a series of mountains and trees. To the right-hand side, another larger pine tree may be seen as well as a large gold leaf painted canon or field piece. The large cannon sits atop a green painted base, with another gold leaf painted tree to its left. There are numerous painted kanji characters on the inside and a few across the bottom. Some of the characters indicate that this is a discharge commemorative for a field artillery unit. Very pretty!
