Subject:Cloisonne Kanji Translation Help Please
Posted By: Howard Dennis Sun, Apr 08, 2018 IP: 2601:5cb:c200:14:71a

Just found this vase which looked like many others until I noticed the column of kanji engraved down one side. I've never seen this before and wonder what it says. It has 2 kanji on top with a space followed by 6 other kanji

It reads,
記念 - Kinen - Commemoration
日本放送協會 - Nippon Hōsō Kyōkai -Japan Broadcasting Corporation (NHK)

Judging from the last unabbreviated character it dates before the script reform of 1946.

With regards,
I.Nagy
