Where was this pot made?

Post  fredtruck on Sat Sep 15, 2012 5:07 pm

When I was in Tainan, Taiwan this spring, I bought this pot from Master Jung. He told me it was bought by a friend of his who was traveling in China. Can anyone ID the maker? Thanks in advance.

I'm not really sure I've got the chop going the right way.

Yes. Here it is. It is not old. It's very contemporary, but it is porcelain and hand-painted with gold. The outlines around all the figures are slightly raised, and no side is the same as any other.

This pot is by Susumu Kataoka. The signature reads "Shuho-zo". The chop is not in my old Tokoname catalog from the 80's. Fine pot!

It's not a "very old pot", but rather modren Tokoname. Maybe Ryan B can give you some dates from the chop used on this pot.

I found out that the name of the kiln is

興榮= flourish / prosper
藝=art/skill

and the signature reads: Wen Hui.

I'm still at a loss as to what the name of the company might actually be, but a guess might be something along the lines of Golden Age Art Porcelain. The name Wen Hui is shared by a pop singer, a dance company and other concerns. I don't think the pop singer painted the designs on my pot. But you never know.
