So I thought that I would share my items that are "made in Occupied Japan"
I don't have a very large collection. In fact only 2 pieces. Both gifts are from my mom. I always remember her telling me that when you look at the bottom, one of the marks that you want is "made in Occupied Japan" . Items marked this way are more collectible. I think maybe because it signifies a precise time in history.
Cherry China made in Occupied Japan.
But I love the history of the things we decide to keep!
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"), only the last two marks guarantee the pieces were made in the Occupied Japan time frame. For serious Occupied Japan collectors, it is items with these two marks for which they search.
