One question only please.
Which is the name of the related Japanese artistic period? MEIJI Restoration?

Thanks for your help

A bit later than Meiji, imo. Into the Taishō period or what ever the equivalent is in in the West.

I got a doubt...
It's Satsuma Taishō or Kutani Taishō?

Thanks

Kutani, because it’s porcelain.
Satsuma wares are all earthenware, and the glaze forms a fine network of cracks called crazing.

I think a previous owner has written their initials on the base in market pen. Best to try to wash it off. Nice pair of vases.

Hi, I am wondering if anyone might know more about this coffee pot and sugar bowl? They are likely to go to the charity shop but I'd just like to know more about them. Thanks.Kutani Zo, Japanese  - Page 2 Img_2016Kutani Zo, Japanese  - Page 2 Img_2018

Early to mid 20thC. It became a bit of a production line with the decoration being outsourced to villagers and the quality going down hill to the point where they used transfer prints which the decorators just coloured in.

Thanks Naomi. Do you mean the plate or the coffee pot and sugar bowl? I've confused things by posting more than one item!  I presume the attached examples are similar age and the same principle of potentially a transfer. Thanks for all your help.Kutani Zo, Japanese  - Page 2 Img_2022

I think they are all kutani ware so it's safe to leave them on the same thread. If it proves otherwise then I'll split the thread and move the plates into the Id My Pottery section.
If you check out Geisha ware porcelain you'll see the transfer printed examples

Just my two cents on the Kutani piece. I don't think it's a sake cup. Sake cups wouldn't have three legs. Since Kutani ware was also made for the export market, and this type of decoration it's a very common export pattern I think it may actually be a toothpick holder. Other things that maybe that usually have three legs are incense burners, or simply a small vase. But who knows...

Thanks for the information :)
Seems it was the Gotheborg website calling them sake cups because they were from a set of seven. But if they were used in cafes or restaurants then they might have been one per table for toothpicks or incense. Or maybe they were beakers

I understand. Gotheborg, They are a great source of information and a reliable one. Still I never seen a sake cup in that shape. Usually Japanese tend to grab the cup with the hand like... like holding it like... well like a cup, lol. Usually they have this round shape to fit nicely in the palm of the hand. There is variations but IMO, It will be very hard to grab it with the hand with three legs getting in the way. The pic they show looks more like a tourist item than something useful for daily life. SO it may have been made for export. I'll try to look for more examples, if I ever find one I'll let you know...

I suspect they were made as beakers for the Western market but could be wrong

Post by Alex J February 25th 2021, 1:53 pm

I find that due to so many variables I would guess that this is around 1900s due to style and wear ??
