Bohemian I presume ? ID = Japanese

2.75 inches tall, bits of the label are missing in particular the bit that says 'Made in .....?' Does anyone recognise who 'MRM' are ? ;D

MRM = Mount Royal Merchandise, which if you search the board was possibly an importer of Japanese stuff, which would explain the Foreign on the label

Hi.  These jumbled thin slices of cane are a well known Japanese design. The 'MRM' label is quite common, but I have seen just 'Made in Japan'.
