    Default Japanese Canteen

    This canteen just arrived in my collection. Although the leather stopper retainer is dry, it's in overall great shape.

    I believe it is named to:
    石田原口
    Ishida Haraguchi
    or
    石田源口
    Ishida Minaguchi

    I believe it was made in Showa 14 (1939) by the Tokyo Depot and inspected by Nishimoto.

    If anyone can clarify this info, I'd appreciate it!

    Nice Pull. Japanese stuff has been climbing over the past ten years.

    Not a bad canteen at all, Joe-san.

    You are right on the date, Mfg. About the name, is hard to tell....Certainly not Haraguchi (a Last name), is Gen or Hajime. However I can't make out the last character.

    The leather strap is still nice, please take good care of it.

    Thank you for posting.

    Cheers!

    We are the Pilgrims , master, we shall go
    Always a little further : it may be
    Beyond that last blue mountain barred with snow
    Across that angry or that glimmering sea...

    To give our members an idea of how difficult Taka-san's task is -- of "guessing" the given name -- check out the possibilities.

    In hand, the last two characters sure do look a lot like this:
    源口Minaguchi[surname]
