Vintage China (various companies)

There have been numerous chinaware companies in Japan, many who have gone out of business, changed names or were incorporated into other companies.There are many that little has been written about in either English or Japanese that I can see. This section will be used to add pieces that fit into this category. If anyone has information feel free to post in the comment section.


   M.H.C.       Which I assume stands for Matsuhara China

    1. I am just learning about the "Made in Occupied Japan" marks. It is very possible that the S.C. mark is valid. I will try to find out something about it and post here. If you have a photo of the mark you can send it to my blog email. marmiet23@gmail.com

  2. I have a miniature cup and saucer with a mark consisting of an outline of a swan with two lines running from it's neck to just under it;s breast, which I perceive as water and curving underneath the words "Made in Japan". The mark is printed in gold or gilding. I have looked everywhere and cannot find anything in any of my reference books or online. Is it possible you know what I'm talking about?

    1. It does not sound familiar to me but I can't really visualize it. You can send me a picture of it at marmiet23@gmail.com. I can't promise results but I can try to see if I can find anything. I really am just learning the export side of Japanese ceramics. I have focused more on the Japanese domestic. Each puzzle gives me a chance to learn more.

  3. I have emailed 2 photos one of the cup and saucer and one of the mark, which appears on each piece. I hope this helps and thanks again.
