Original Second Sino-Japanese War Soldier Identified War Trophy Tiger Statue
Vintage 1930s to mid 1940s Second Sino Japanese War Kaikosha Officers Club Tiger War Trophy Statue. Identified Chinese soldier recipient and identified Japanese Unit. This is an example of a piece of forgotten/unspoken history from Japan. This was given from the Japanese Kaikosha to deserving individuals for their contributions to the war effort against the Chinese. This one was thought to be given for efforts during the occupation and seizing of Manchuria. This was determined by the actions of the unit identified on the chest of the tiger. Empire of Japan’s Kwantung Army invaded Manchuria on 18 September 1931, immediately following the Mukden Incident. This item was found in US Navy veterans estate after his death. I want to dispell some inconsistency people try to say about these items; the main one being that these came in pairs. This is 100% false. These were made for specific individuals and were singular items commemorating acts for Japan. These again are EXTREMELY Rare!!! Feel free to drop an offer, but only reasonable offers will be considered.
