Subject:Request help identifying mark on Satsuma Box #2
Posted By: Roger Tue, Mar 23, 2021 IP: 2601:281:c202:b68a:b

Hi again,
Here's the second box. I wasn't able to find any information on the marks on either box. Any information would be greatly appreciated! Thank you!

The mark reads: Hattori 服部.

it's a mark of Hattori Manufacturing (Hattori Seizo), which made Satsuma style Yokohama export ware from circa 1900 till 1940 before World War II. The blank pottery vase was made in Kyoto or Mino and then brought to Yokohama for the final coloring & decorating process. Most of these commercial products were mass produced for export.
