Subject:Awaji vase with unknown mark
Posted By: Martin Michels Mon, Apr 10, 2017 IP: 126.96.36.199
I spotted this earthenware vase online with a curious mark I've never seen before. It was offered as Awaji ware, probably because there is a square that looks like the Awaji Sanpei flag. But I'm wondering whether this is all correct. I couldn't decipher the 4 characters, only the 1st one (Mei?).
Has someone any idea what kind of ware this is?
And what the 4 characters mean in - I suppose - Japanese?
Thanks in advance,
