Chinese? Japanese ? date ?

Post by lindylou08 on June 9th 2014, 3:05 pm

In other words I haven't the first idea about this jug !! But I'm sure there's someone on here who could give me an idea.

I rather like it and assume it's Japanese as it's decorated with cranes , although could be wrong about that too.
It obviously has a bit of age as the gilding on the top of the handle is very worn. Also no idea if mark is Japanese or Chinese. 10cms high










Thanks , keeping fingers crossed !

Nice. I'd say Japanese too, because of the cranes. I can't find the mark, but I can ask someone on FB if you don't mind me copying & posting the photos.

It was obviously made for the Western market and it looks 1920s/1930s to me but it really isn't my field.

Well so far it's got a lot of likes, but no positive ID. Someone suggested the marks are Chinese so I've posted it there too. Just have to wait and see.

Yes , one of the reasons I included Chinese in the topic heading was that although I initially thought of Japan and the importance of Red cranes to them, there is also lot of reference on line to their importance to the Chinese ( and other areas of the world too !!)

Just had a reply:

廣生隆 造 means made by Guangshenglong ( company's name ), in 小江窯 Xiao jiang kiln, 浦北 縣 Pu bei county, Guangxi province, China.
ca.1930's?


So it's Chinese.

That's great , thanks Excellent. I'm glad it confirmed my original idea that it might be Chinese. Now I've got to decide whether I like it enough to keep or sell it on as I have no idea whether it's worthwhile

Well a number of people liked it in the group so I think it'll sell, but whether it'll sell well is another matter entirely. They might just want it for a fiver. Happy

I don't think that there is any real market for this type of thing so it will sell on its looks.
