Very interesting Japanese military sake bottle. The front shows a sword, helmet and flag resting on cherry blossoms in an oval depressed into the porcelain. Above this is a star. This is a nice enough motif but as the bottle is turned it becomes evident that subtly raised from the porcelain body is a whole series of further military themes; Cavalry, artillery in action, charging infantry, a rolling tank, horse pulling limbered artillery, infantry scaling a slope, a large falling bomb and an airplane. Very extensive artwork but very subtle and uncolored. Something I have not seen before.
