Subject:Japanese Jar
Posted By: Paul Sat, Nov 03, 2018 IP: 2601:646:4200:c040:8

can someone give me any information on this jar? Age? It is about 25" in height. Thank you for your time.

Looks like an Imari vase from the Arita region.
The big square mark reads: Fuku 福 (= fortune).
The other mark: in native Japanese reading (ON): Asahiyama 旭山 Zo 造 (made by Asahiyama).
In Sino Japanese reading (KUN): Kyokuzan 旭山 Zo 造 (made by Kyokuzan).
Kyokuzan is a name seen on Satsuma and Kutani pottery / porcelain, but not on Imari, so I think the small sticker is right: Asahiyama circa 1890.

Thank you so much for this information. Do you think that this jar is Meiji era circa 1890? Thank you again for your help | Associations | Articles | Exhibitions | Galleries |
