Subject:Butterfly bowl with gold netting
Posted By: Michelle Sun, Aug 11, 2019 IP: 2600:1700:a3a1:4010:

Can you please let me know what the signature on the bottom says? And if anyone knows the possible age and where this was made. It's a very heavy piece and looks to be beautifully painted. Thank you so much for your help!

The mark reads: Kozan 光山 with a very stylistic 光 character. Date: 1900-1925.
This Kozan (NOT the Makuzu Kozan) was a Satsuma ware artist from Kyoto. No further information known about him.
