Subject:Japanese Satsuma mark
Posted By: Ian E Sat, May 22, 2021 IP: 126.96.36.199
Hi there, I have a mark on a Satsuma jar I have been struggling with, please see image.
The right most column is of course 大日本 Dai Nihon
The center column I believe is 薩广国 (Satsuma kuni)
The left most column I have been struggling with, I tentatively have 九恒画 but this does not seem to fit with any Satsuma makers I can reference, so I suspect it is wrong.
The item itself is a lidded jar, cream ground with chrysanthemums etc. It would appear to be late Meiji or Taisho.
Any thoughts? Many thanks in advance.
