國務總理大臣  鄭孝胥
財政部大臣   熙洽

To the appointed special envoys:
Minister of State Zheng Xiaoxu
Minister of Finance Zhu Qia

純銀服部製 - Pure Silver Made by Hattori
(Watch and jewellery shop in Tokyo, Ginza, founded in 1881)

In 1934 Emperor Pu Yi of Manchukuo in order to express his gratitude to the Japanese Emperor sent
Zheng Xiaoxu and Zhu Qia as special envoys to Japan. I think two boxes were made by the Japanese side as presents. (This is one of the two).

With regards,
