Question: How do you recognize Occupied Japan?

Identification. Look for marks under porcelain and china goods, or marked somewhere on other products like clocks. Marks should include the words Occupied Japan or Made In Occupied Japan.

What does it mean when a figurine says Made in Occupied Japan?

“Occupied Japan” refers to the years 1945 through 1951 when western forces occupied Japan. All goods destined for the U.S. had to be marked “Occupied Japan” or “Made in Occupied Japan.” The products were usually inexpensive toys, tea sets and kitchen items, many of them copying western motifs.

Are figurines made in occupied Japan worth money?

Pairs of figurines are worth twice the value of a single figure of comparable quality (ranging from $8 to $30). In general, larger figurines are more scarce and worth snapping up. A toy with original packaging may be worth at least 10 percent more than one without.
