For those wishing additional help consider joining The Facebook Group "Collecting Japanese Ceramics and Arts". You must apply under your personal FB page with no banner displaying a business. This group is educational and does not allow buying, selling, advertising nor does it give valuations. It is a great group with many knowledgable people who volunteer their time to help people identify their pieces.
If you belong to a lot groups (100+) you will probably will not get in, as the group wants people who are serious about learning about Japanese ceramics.
