Keeping Occupied

"Made in Occupied Japan" is a collectible category.  Here are two small pieces that occupy a bedroom shelf in my house. 

They originally belonged to my mother, but she gave them to me when I was a child; rather trusting of her.  They have survived a child's hand and all this time. The top of the chest actually does come off for storing teeny treasures.

My mom also had a collection of dog statues (that I will show some day), and I think there are a couple of "Occupied Japan" pieces in there.  I also have a little jewelry dish shaped like a leaf that is "OJ."  It is packed away in my basement which is why I did not shoot it.  Maybe I'll get ambitious some rainy day and unearth it (don't hold your breath).
