Collecting Occupied Japan items

 

Following the end of World War II in 1945 and until 1952, items imported from Japan to the United States had to be marked in a fashion indicating they came from Occupied Japan. Although four different marks were used on cups and saucers. During this time ("Japan," "Made in Japan ," "Occupied Japan," and "Made in Occupied Japan")were used,only the last two marks guarantee the pieces were made in the Occupied Japan timeframe. For serious Occupied Japan collectors, it is items with these two marks which are truly worth collecting. 

   It should be noted that  the "Occupied Japan" label was only required by the US and many items shipped to other countries without it. Also there were a lot of US armed forces and other American personel in Japan many of which brought home small souvenirs (and some priceless treasures) which did not have to be so marked. This makes identifying "Occupied Japan" very difficult.

It has been mentioned that if the "Occupied Japan" mark is stamped, or inked on it more than likely is not "Occupied Japan". This could be misleading as well since you need to realize that the Japanese have always been resourceful, so faced with having to make new products from scratch and scrapping anyhing made until that time, it would seem logical that simply stamping existing items for the US market would be much more cost effective for a war ravaged country.

So this again complicates things.

 

 From this period there are many manufacturers marks besides the obligatory "Occupied Japan" and "Made in Occupied Japan".
