      About the paper sticker:


      When the Occupation ended in 1952, marks no longer contained the work "Occupied" so pieces were again marked only with "Japan" or "Made in Japan". This is when the paper label era really began. Prior to WWII, paper labels were flimsy and the glue was often not strong, so the Customs Bureau usually made importers replace the labels with indelible ink backstamps. In the 1950's ,technology improved and paper labels were allowed. The two most common types of labels seem to be: *Small oval or rectangular blue or black paper with white letters. * Two -color metallic, such as black or red with gold or silver lettering. The real sleepers are the post-WWII Made in Japan pieces because they are stil very affordable. but watch for quality items with no damage."

      It's hard to make out the age of the sticker due to the photos not being very clear. It would be good to know if the sticker is paper or foil, and to see the lettering.

      I may have this wrong, but thought I read somewhere that most Japanese Dresden is pre-WWII?
