An import from Japan, and even stamped as such on the rim. The Empress was a Japanese copy of the popular Duncan Satellite. With three piece construction, it was not a contender. Balance was not a concern of assembly. The two sides are not even exactly the same size. However, with the antique looking painted and fading, these are very beautiful yo-yos, and almost look like Christmas ornaments. And they did do a better job than Duncan on imprinting the logo. A classic collectible from Japan.
