I was not sure because of the medium used to sign, but I have 19thc raku that looks like it was made yesterday and this has certainly been around a while with a plant stood in it and covered in various colours of paint splatter: so this one really has me confused, p

The raku technique used by the potter to make your ‘AK pot’ is a relatively modern introduction, and has become increasingly popular in the past forty years, so I would be surprised if you have a raku pot from the 19thC unless it’s a traditional low fired earthenware of the type made in Mexico; Morocco, Africa, etc
