Subject:Hirado dish and mark? (pict. included)
Posted By: JC Mon, Jun 04, 2018 IP: 192.42.116.20

Hi,

I recently got this Hirado dish - supposedly of the Meiji period...? Does anybody know the centered mark on the backside? - can it be confirmed to Meiji (early or late) and does the mark symbolize anything - eg. a variant of a Fuku mark or so? It's not one I've ever seen before.

The colors might be a bit of...

This is by Aoki brothers, not Hirado. The mark is Aoki bros mark used from Meiji up to 1950's.

Hi Billy,

is this the mark you are referring to? - it is *not* the same. The particular motif, sansui + Chinese fishermen, is well known for Hirado.
