Sake Cup-0040 “9th Regiment Supply-Commemorative Discharge”
This Japanese Sake Cup is in very good condition with no chips or cracks. It measures approximately 2″ from rim to rim. The center of the cup has a stylized horsemanship badge in the center, painted in yellow, gold and white. The horse’s head normally denotes “cavalry” or “supply”. To the left is a partially furled Japanese Battle Flag. The gold leaf on the rim is slightly worn. The outside of the cup is painted in a pleasant blue color. The raised base is surrounded by a cherry blossom with falling cherry pedals. The base of the cup is named and also has the kanji characters for “Kutani” the sake cup manufacture. A beautiful cup!
