    Default Sake Serving Tray?

    Hello, I have this tray made of laquered wood and 21cm across. The Kanji markings read '4th Field Artillery Regiment'. Presumably it is for serving Sake? Is it an authentic period item (are these reproduced/faked)? It was bought very cheaply. Any help will be appreciated. Douglas

    Very nice piece Douglas,
    I've come across a few of these over the years, yours is one of the best I've seen.

    Thanks for sharing.

    Cheers-

    Hello Douglas,

    I believe this to be an authentic piece. My understanding is that they were given, usually along with two or four similarily painted Sake cups, to soldiers leaving a unit. The 4th Field Artillery Regiment predates WWII and that tray could well have sat undamaged for many years in a home. For some time I acquired Sake cups and came across trays in similar condition on a regular basis. The lacquer seems to have done an outstanding job of preservation on many of them.

    Regards,
    Stu
