Japanese Empire WWII Era 1940's Imperial Aviator Naval Statue    Japanese Empire WWII Era 1940's Imperial Aviator Naval Statue

Antique Statue naval Navy WWII Era Estate Sale 1940's Estate Sale of Collector. One person thought it was a statue from the Empire of Japan, Chiran naval aviator, Imperial Japanese Navy WWII; however, the sailor/aviator on the statue smiling, and the majority of the photos I recall seeing were very serious, I'm not sure that person was right. I do think it's from that Era, the 1940's... It's absolutely metal, I can see a'seam' (from a mold)... It is NOT magnetic, and it'has some TONE' (rather than a'thud') so we're pretty sure it's old school bronze, with a bit more cooper.

The'character' leaning against the anchor appears to be of Asian decent, but could be just about anything. We are not experts, so take our guesses with a grain of salt.

IF it was from WWII, the naval air service was one of the most potent air forces in the world. We couldn't find anything else like it, haven't any clue about the maker, or subject, and are speculating on the age based on the style and design. It could be much older than the 80'ish years we think...

And it might not actually have been made in Japan. Some history we found while trying to gather info on this piece.

Nearly all of the Japanese fighters were sent to the bottom of the sea by the war's end, but not before going down in history as one of the toughest and most dedicated. "Kamikaze" became a household phrase, denoting "THE LAST GREAT ACT OF DEFIANCE" and officially a part of the Japanese Special Attack Units, who flew suicide attacks for the Empire. The efforts of about 3,800 kamikaze pilots, who died during the war, and costing the lives of more than 7,000 allied forces killed by kamikaze attacks. And the Japanese ACTUALLY DID have both some small fugo bombs and even some real people ON AMERICAN SOIL (Oregon & Washington, and off the coast of California) during WWII. Look up, "Japanese landed in Oregon during WWII" if you're interested in the topic...

Something the majority of American's were NEVER TAUGHT in school, even if you were FROM THAT AREA. See Photos - Came from an estate sale, was kept in a display cabinet, don't know else anything about it. EXCELLENT USED CONDITION, though the'felt bottom was removed' prior to our acquisition. It came from the daughter of a collector, and she didn't know anything about it, other than it was'around' as long as she could remember, and her grandfather served in WWII.

There are some small scuffs and scratches, as one should expect for an item that is likely over 80 years old. No known abuse or issues.

No stains, flaws, or issues to note that aren't in the photos. Ready for a new home. Reasonable offers will be considered... So, if you really want this, what is it worth to you? Japanese Empire WWII Era 1940's Imperial Aviator Naval Statue.

If an item is'USED' or'PRE-OWNED' - it is unreasonable to think, feel, or believe it will not have some scratch, nick, or blemish, even if it otherwise'LOOKs NEW.

Please compare to your favorite garments to ensure fit. Understand SOME MATERIALS CAN NOT BE PUT IN A DRIER - but only'air dried. Especially WOOL and Dry Clean Only items. (if we don't have a VA appointment or other emergency, which is rare).

We will cancel the order IF IT DOESN'T MEET YOUR SPECIFICATIONS without any delay or issue... Please understand: We have over 1,500 pair of shoes, and thousands of clothes, and to measure them all takes a bunch of time. We do try to measure those items that'seem off' or different than their label, or that are lacking a label; if we did, those measurements WILL BE IN THE PHOTOS. &#####x27A4; Note: sending us selfies of body parts for us to GUESS YOUR SIZE, or ask if'it might fit,' won't help you.

&#####x27A4; Both of us were honorably discharged from the US Airforce many, many, many years ago. As'mostly retired' CONCERT & event Photographers that haven't worked any commercial events since the government mandated closures. Concerts are still all over the place, and so much has changed since March 2020 in the Music Industry & when we'd photograph "MEET & GREETs, " concerts, shows, and events. We used to be somewhere, usually Tennessee or sourounding areas, photographing someone or something, a couple times a week (over 100 times a year)... However, since the closures we've not photographed a concert since.

Our goal is to meet and exceed expectations WHEN POSSIBLE knowing we can't please everyone every time. But we can exceed the expectations of most - most of the time... &#####x27A4; NOTE: If it is NEW IN THE BOX, or OPEN BOX, other than to take photos and make sure it matches the photos, unless stated otherwise, we haven't checked or tested it. We list in good faith... Describe as well as we can.
