Propaganda Kimono

No evidence of Japan's foray into China is noted on the globe so this beautifully designed piece likely dates prior to 1932.
Mutsu, (as noted on the life preserver), named after Mutsu Province, was the Imperial Japanese Navy's second Nagato class battleship. Launched on May 31, 1920 and completed on October 24, 1921, Mutsu sailed with the Yamato, Nagato, Hosho, Sendai, nine destroyers and four auxiliary ships as Admiral Isoroku Yamamoto's Main Body during the Battle of Midway in June 1942.
