Help needed with pottery fan

Post by olipayton on September 13th 2017, 11:27 am

Hi boys and girls. This heavy fan came to me with other pieces, I am pretty sure it not Oriental and I sure I have seen the marks before but I can't remember where,



The backmarks at the top and bottom look Chinese influenced to me - the side marks just look like aliens to me, I assume they are flowers.

Its no great quality, I think, but hopefully some one will know so I can bank some more information

Its Japanese Imari. Late 19thC or a modern copy; difficult to tell from the photos but if you google Meiji Imari fan dishes you'll see more of them.

The Marks on the back I think are bamboo and stylised bats
