Subject:Japanese square imari plate, modern? translation request.
Posted By: Brandon mccloskey Wed, Feb 07, 2018 IP: 173.191.104.106

I has a set of three of these. Quality looks good but am unsure of the age, I assume late Showa period? The feet don't look right if they were older.. right? Stamped with a blue underglaze and an impressed mark which are or almost look identical? Whats that about?

Mark and embossing reads,
清山 - Seizan
Basically, it is a Kutani-yaki. Seizan kiln was founded in the latter part of the Meiji era in Terai-machi,
Nomi City, Ishikawa Prefecture.

With regards,

Thank you Nagy!Can you estimate the date? Would you know why the two marks are different but say the same thing? Possibly fired and painted in two different areas of japan?

Dear Brandon,
Your piece looks quite modern, but I would rather leave the age appreciation to experts on ceramics.
The markings 清山 "Seizan" are the very same. The hand
painted version is the individual style of the painter,
whilst at the embossed version the second character
山 adopts the seal-script version.

With regards,
I.Nagy
