Subject:Re: Kinzan zo Buddha

Your Buddha image with stamped-on Kinzan mark appears to be painted in a palette I think was more prevalent on Japanese ceramic figurines around and after the mid-20th century. I've included a live link below to a trocadero.com store where there is further information available on the Kinzan Kiln (Kinzangama), which is now being run by the third generation of the Kinzan proprietary line. Also, here's another link you can access by pasting it in your browser.
Both items at the links appear to be older and more elegant in the decorative sense than your Buddha, but Buddha images, with rare exception, are meant to be more serene than showy. Besides, if your image was made around mid-century, as is possible, it was a period of recovery from wartime.
Good luck in your research,
