Retro Find

I found these cool retro sake bottles at an antique mall in the middle of Ohio. I have a few vintage Japanese kokeshi dolls so I thought they would fit right in. The bottles are made of glass with metal lids topped with hand painted wood heads. They date from the 1960s and originally held flavored Japanese sake. One of the bottles no longer has its tags but the other bottle held melon flavored sake. Made by House of Koshu, they originally came in a set of 7 different flavors and were given to first class passengers on Japan Airlines flights. That would have been a really cool souvenir!
