"Collecting Japanese Ceramics and Arts" Facebook Group

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.

Toby Mugs


Toby mugs (jugs) originated in Great Britain but it seems like there are renditions of the themed mugs from many countries. I have seen the real Royal Doulton mugs and really there is no comparison!
Japan produced a large amount of these mugs, some marked Made In Japan and others Made in Occupied Japan. Many are marked Wales China.
