This is a lovely little set.  Both are marked identically to base with a possible BR 13?

The decoration looks like that of the Ken Edwards pottery of Tenola, Mexico. Founded in the 1960's there is a fair amount of it around.

It’s signed with kanji characters. Japanese, imo, although I’m afraid I can’t translate them. You might find the mark on the Gotheborg website of 20thC Japanese and Chinese Marks

I can't see this being Ken Edwards. I've had a few of his pieces and the decoration is much simpler, usually just either a bird or butterfly, and always signed 'KE Mexico'. That doesn't rule out the possibility of it being by another potter working at the Tenola Pottery but the bamboo decoration certainly points to Japan.
