What are lamps made in occupied japan?

Pottery like lamps and china stamped with the words "Made in Occupied Japan" were made between the end of World War II in 1945 and April 1952. During this period The United States, along with the United Kingdom and other Allied Powers occupied Japan.

General Douglas MacArthur took over control of the main islands, while the Allies took over control of the other islands, to address the critical mission of the rebuilding of Japan. The Japanese were facing food shortages after the destruction of many cities and the eventual collapse of the government; this along with the disarmament of their military and the repatriation of Japanese soldiers were among the missions of the Allies during this time.
