|Artillery shell shaped bottle and matching cup, fairly scarce.
The sake cup has a Golden Kite base.
Inscribed 'A Soldier Must be Loyal, 40th Infantry, Victorious
NOTE: The bottle and cup appear to be white in the photos,
but they are actually a soft blue.
|The cities (places) aren't named, though. Obvious ones (by location) in China are Shanghai,
Peking, Nanking, Hong Kong. In Manchuria: Port Arthur. There are a few others, too.
There are also some larger gold painted circles in Seoul, Shimonoseki, and Tokyo.
Inscribed 'China Incident, Victorious Return Commemorative.'
|Underglaze blue design.
Inscribed 'Discharge Commemorative, Fukuoka 9th Company.'
I've never heard of a 9th Company from Fukuoka, so this may be a
SDF bottle or perhaps a police bottle.
|Beautiful tokkuri with a raised Imperial Guard insignia painted gold. The gold paint
here is fresh and bright, which is uncommon. Below are Imperial paulonia leaves.
Inscribed '1st Imperial Guard, Discharge Commemorative.'
