Logo Cup

Description
A white cup with the first generation AFC Corporation logo on the front. The logo consists of a red outlined oval with the letters “AFC” and an image of two pieces of nigiri sushi. On this cup, “SUSHI” is printed in green right above the logo. The back of the cup includes a drawing of a mountain, fields, a blue sky, three travelers, and Japanese inscriptions. It is an illustration of the landscape of the Japanese countryside.
Along with other AFC paraphernalia, this was given to AFC employees as a seasonal gift.
