Hi George,

 

I have a fair collection of these and yours certainly look authentic to me. 

From what I understand there are so many sake cups on the market due to their popularity that reporducing them would not be profitable.

Thanks for posting them and I hope others with more knowledge than I have will respond.

Regards

Brian

Concur. Fakes are so unlikely, save for maybe the most unique or rarest of cups, and even then. Pick up a copy of Dan King's book, and be sure to familairize yourself with Rich's website, probably nobody more knowledgeable about sake cups than Rich or Dan.

For a newbie, can you please give a URL for Rich's Website and a Title for Dan King's Book?  I have a bunch of both this kind of Saki cup (many in the shape of a WW2 Japanese Helmet), military saki bottles, and some of the larger red lacquer flatter saki cups, all of which I picked up in the orient in the early 1970s.  I'd like to find out more about them.
