Subject:Follow-up to Jan 6 posting
Posted By: Bill H Sat, Jan 08, 2022 IP:

Here's another group of photos from my friend of another dish that came with the one shown on Jan 6. This one bears a mark of 宣鮑新興寶造, which came up in a number of Japanese auctions online, which mentioned shipping locations such as Kyoto and Toyama, the latter being east of Tokyo. These auction notices described the piece as having a Chinese "abalone" glaze. I include links to one of the descriptions here in hopes of eliciting a review and synopsis by I.Nagy. Perhaps it will shed some light on the earlier posting, where the dish was believed to be Chinese.

All comments welcome.

Best regards,

Bill H.

Dear Bill,
I think the key to the solution is in the reading order of the marking.
I read it;
宜興鮑寳新造 - Yíxīng Bào Băoxīn-zào - Yixing,
Made by Bào Băoxīn
It is apparently Yíxing purple sand covered with gray (not Chinese abalone ) glaze.
I can't find the potter's name in my books or on online, but at least 11 other potters name are mentioned with the same Bao surname in Yixing.
I think it is a relatively modern dish from China,
and not Japan.
I will try to find out something about the Jan 6.

With regards,

Dear I.Nagy, I've never been very alert when it comes to Yixing wares and appreciate your wake-up call and other information. You're a unique pillar of wisdom around these parts.

Many thanks,

Bill H.

I am not at all a specialist in this field.
But I am pretty sure these dishes are recently made in China. It is a tendency to recreate pieces in traditions lost or nearly lost. And they could really look great. A few years ago I purchased (in Japan) a number of quality ceramics in song styles with very intriguing glaces, like for instance ice crackle glace. A few also had marks with famous backgrounds but probably without even a historic example. I might do some photos if it helps to see this as a tendency produced for a discerning market.
