Sake Celebration

This month we recognize Sake in our Asian Antiques and in the Japanese Byobu Screens. From the pair of six fold screens entitled, "Celebration of the Sake God" to the two fold screen, "Sake Drinkers" (these ladies had to be let out of our treasure house for celebrating a little too much), it is apparent that Sake is an influence in art and culture.
