Some helpful links (I cannot verify if all the information is correct):

From the collection of Shawn Dempsey:




  1. You have a mind boggling number of marks here! I am trying to find the name of a pottery which uses as its mark a line of three pine trees, just simplified outlines with a single line for the trunk and a top in the shape of a spearhead. I can send photos if I have an email address. Underneath these 'pines' is the word JAPAN. They are very skilfully made pots. Any ideas?

    1. I will try to help. Please send photos to Marmiet23@gmail.com.

  2. I just found your blog! I wonder if you can help me with some Kutani I have? It was my Grandmother's and she inherited it from her Great Aunt. Can you help? Thanks!

  3. I can try. Send me photos of the pieces as well as the bottom and close up of the mark to marmiet23@gmail.com

  4. I am uploading photos now and will email to you, Thanks!
