Hi there! New member and first post for me. I was wondering if you would be able to help me with more information about a bowl I purchased at a local auction with the description simply being, "Antique Japanese Bowl with Stains"? I was told the mark is Gyōzan and likely made in the 1920's-1930's. Would someone be able to confirm this and offer any additional information? Thank you!


Looks as if no one is able to tell more about this....


Hi Laura, sorry for taking so long, I think your bowl is from the Ohokawachi factory in Hizen, satsuma style, it bears the Tokugawa family crest on the inside of the bowl the circle with the three leaves, I could not find your mark in my book, the Gozan and Gyozan marks are completely different, but nice bowl, I would say it is early Meiji.
BTW, I think your mark is upside down.


Thank you very much for the information! I'm happy to add it to my collection!
