Occupied Japan Lighters
“Occupied Japan” refers to a specific period in history following World War II when Japan was under Allied occupation, primarily led by the United States. This period lasted from 1945 to 1952. During this time, items manufactured in Japan were often marked with “Occupied Japan” to indicate their origin.
Lighters produced during the Occupied Japan era are collectibles today. They were often made from various materials such as metal, brass, or even ceramics. These lighters can bear unique designs and craftsmanship, reflecting the artistic styles of that period. The “Occupied Japan” mark can be found on the bottom or side of these items.
