Prize Sake Cup from Aircraft Carrier Kaga Dated 1933
Sold BL

Superb item. The top of the sake cup reads "Prize". Writing around the rim on the outside translates to Showa 8 (1938) Warship Kaga. I am not sure what this was awarded for but I would assume it had something to do with some military skill. The Kaga was one of the four aircraft carriers sunk in the Battle of Midway which was the turning point in the Pacific war so this attribution is really a very significant point. A really nice item which would be at home in even an advanced collection.
