Another Japanese dish, this one with an impressed mark (upside-down) of Seiji Kaisha, a Fukagawa company that stopped production around the end of the 19th century. Their early work was fairly high quality, so I suspect your dish came late in their lifetime.

Here's a Seiji Kaisha fish tray about eight inches in length with their red mark of the same configuration.

Best regards,

Bill H.

This is a Japanese Imari Arita plate, marked with the logo (upside down here) of the Seiji Kaisha = Pure Water Company, founded in 1879 by some members that left the Fukagawa Koransha company. This Seiji Kaisha must not to be confused with the Fukagawa Seiji Company of Chuji Fukagawa, founded in the same year 1879. The Seiji Kaisha closed in 1897.
