Japanese or Chinese is it worth restoring? Help identify origin please.

Post by ClaraIreland2 on August 7th 2016, 11:07 am

This bowl is very damaged but it looks old and I wonder if it is worth having it restored. There are no marks on the bowl but I do like the central decoration - The trees and pagoda. Any help much appreciated

Hi Clara

Can you post pictures of the underside? Even if it has no marks they way it was made would help working out who made it. It could be Asian it could also being European copying the Asian imports or even more confusing an Asian copy of a European copy of an Asian original (it is a minefield).

As for restoration. I would advise stabilizing the damage so it does not get any worse and you could probably do that yourself with a quick look at a "HOW TO" guide on You tube. But I would not pay to have it restored.

An image of the base would be a huge help but my initial reaction is that it's a tin glazed earthenware, European, possibly English.

Only worth having restored if you don't like having damaged pots on display. You're unlikely to recoup the costs on resale. If you're planning to sell on then leave it as it is and let the buyer pay for restoration
