Many of the photos shown are in my collection. I will share what I learn about the kilns, artists, styles, and marks. This is a work in progress. Come along with me as I learn.
Because my blog traffic has grown, I will add marks from various other sources.
** NOTICE: I can no longer take readers queries on personal pieces. General comments and questions still accepted.

NIPPON YOKOHAMA IMURA ZO (日本横浜井村造)
From what I can gather so far, Nippon Yokohama Imura china is from the late Meiji period, circa 1890 and may have extended through at least the early Taisho (1912-1926).
Varied UK and US sites date Nippon Yokohama Imura Zo anywhere from 1890-1920's. The Japanese sites I have found state this porcelain as mainly Meiji era (1868-1912) but some seems to have been produced in the Taisho period (1912-1926) as well.
