Could you please tell me more about this music box, it has CrestLine Japan Marked on the bottom of it. It stills plays music also. We also have more stuff marked occupied Japan on the bottom of porcelain figurines. Thank you Corinna Coulson

Looking for any additional info on this family piece. We know it, and I've seen similar items, called "thousand face" design. They just say it is old... many thanks

Hello Greg, I've been without a computer while visiting family this week in western NY. Your wife did an amazing amount of work on these and I hope she found it interesting as well as very helpful to me. I THANK YOU BOTH. Looks like she did an outstanding job, above and beyond the call.... The cards are very much older than I originally thought. What sparks me is to learn about the items that come into my hands. I can usually dig up a fair amount of information on my own, but in this case I needed the help. Again, many thanks. No, no Chinese, lol...

Hello Again Ed! Ok, I just had my wife take a look at these 4 post cards & they all appear to be from the Osaka Kansai area, and according to the postal stamps date from the early 1900`s. The first one with the 5 R Stamping(5 Rin) is the oldest as I did a search on the web and found an actual 5 Ren stamp that dated to 1876, or early Meiji Period. So this one could be a late 1800`s card. It is to a Sano Torazo-sama dated Aug. 5, year ? and his address. The other side basically is saying good luck on your college studies, study hard & you will be successful. We call these "Gombaru" letters, or "Do your best"! The 2nd card with the 1 Sen Stamp is from the Kyushu area, Nishikawa Village and addressed to Takahashi Daisuke-sama. The other side is basically undecipherable by my wife, as it is the old way to write Kanji which she did not study too much. They changed the way Kanji is written & read after WWII, and she is from this era of course. Her mom might be able to read it but I do not want to trouble her as she is getting on in years! My wife could read the word "michi" or road, and the number 252, so it is probably just some friend writing to another friend about his home area. Nothing to interesting I think. The 3rd card with the blue 1 Sen Stamping is from the Osaka area and was sent c/o Osaki-san to Ishida-san. It appears to be a company post card, or maybe he was an employee of Osaki-san and living with him or in a dormitory. It is basic conversation between friends or business associates she thinks, and she could make out "last month" & the rest was undecipherable due to the old way to read Kanji. The last card, the 4th one with the blue 1 Sen Stamping is from the Osaka area also, Hyogo-ken and my wife could not read any of this one, either the address side or message side. Sorry we could not be more helpful, but what you have basically are some old Kansai area post cards from friends, talking about everyday stuff and dating from the late 1800`s for the first card up to about 1920 or so I think. What they are worth I have no idea, but I think not too much since they are not from any famous people & there are no photos! Wish I could have been more helpful, but do not hesitate to ask again if you have something you wish identified that is Japanese. We will do our best to help! If it is Chinese, you are on your own! LOL! Cheers! Greg(Swims)
