Subject:Could someone confirm if these trinket boxes are vintage?
Posted By: Lissa Amor Wed, Sep 06, 2017 IP: 196.75.80.199

Hi!

Could someone be so kind to confirm if these are vintage - 20th century Chinese ceramic trinket boxes?

Thanks so much!

Lissa,

These are Japanese, the mark is saying: Dai Nippon 大日本 (Great Japan) Satsuma 薩广 Yaki 焼
(Satsuma ware) Gyokushu 玉秀 Ga 画 (Painted by Gyokushu).
Plus the Shimazu crest on top (circle with cross). Probably Late Meiji / Early Taisho Period (1900-1920) in my opinion.

According Gotheborg.com:
Handwritten Dai Nippon marks together with the artist’s signature date to the Meiji Period (1868-1911), reflecting the greatly increased nationalism of that period.

Regards,
Martin.
