Subject:Imari Dish - Unknown mark & period - ver. 2
Posted By: Dennis Sun, Oct 01, 2017 IP: 185.137.18.175

Hi,

I'm wondering if this dish (dia: 21cm) could be a late Edo or rather an early Meiji?
I have not been able to find any info on the blue center mark / possibly the red mark (from another piece) might be an identical one (likely newer - seems a stamp to me).

Any info would be appreciated :-)

I might have found some info on this. Based on the following mark (1920s-1930s, made for export to France & Philippines):



which seems a somewhat ident. mark which would read "Ishiyama - 石山"

Quote from the net: "The name Ishiyama means “Stone Mountain,” and indeed porcelain stone is quarried in the mountains nearby. The stone is of a very high quality, and seventy percent of Japanese ceramics makers, including the renowned Arita-Yaki, Seto-Yaki and others, use it in their production. Gosoku-no-Kutsu is furnished with various plates, basins and ornaments made by local potters using this stone."

Any info would be appreciated :-)

Dennis,

In your case the characters are written different: 山石, so Yamaishi, which is possible.
I rather think that it's only 1 character: Iwa 岩 (meaning: rock). I've included a picture from my marks database where I cataloged it as "Iwa".
Both are marks from Imari plates Meiji Era.
I've no further information about this mark.
Regards,
Martin.

Thanks for the info Martin and for the images you display there. I'm going to assume if there is a blue version and a red version of the same mark - the blue one is likely the older one!
This dish is probably pre 1880 and likely not earlier than 1860.
