Sake Cup-0012

This pale blue sake cup measures approximately 2.25″ across. The rim is outlined in gold leaf and the cup is in mint condition overall.  In the center, a faded Japanese Type 90 steel helmet may be seen. Directly above it, a Japanese battle flag is fully unfurled; illustrated in gold leaf and red paint. Immediately below that, gold leaf cherry blossoms may be seen, their interiors painted in pink paint. Gold leaf painted kanji characters may be seen scattering the inside aspect. This is a bright and richly painted example of a Japanese World War Two sake cup.
