Subject:Mark on Modern Ceramic?
Posted By: Lance William Frazer Wed, Sep 04, 2019 IP: 2601:204:4000:dfa8:c

It's a well-decorated pitcher, about 10 inches high (including the top). Has a mark on the bottom reading "JFGI" in front of a stylized mountain. I'm not imagining that the pitcher has any age to it, merely curious about what individual or enterprise the letters represent. Appreciate any help.

I've never seen this mark before, so I don't know what JFGI means, perhaps someone else knows. Because it's Japanese the sequence of JFGI might be different?

What I do know is that this is Kutani ware, in my opinion from the 1930's.
