Oriental mark on Sake set, ID = Senshun
« on: April 11, 2018, 06:52:20 PM »
This is probably quite new but i liked it so i bought it for 3. I think they are Kutani style sake cups. Seems really nicely done, any ideas who?

...Sorry, my 1st picture is a bit out of focus.

Well that's got me bamboozled  ??? can't find anything similar, the mark bears some resemblance to the Kutani mark but has ''extra' 'bits' sorry  ???

This is the standard and most common form for Kutani ware, you can see the similarities...

Thanks to someone on Asian Art Forum the mark reads 'Senshun'. Name of kiln that continues for three generations in the Hiyoshi area of Kyoto.  :)
