woow... more and faster info than expected, thanks again
i looked at the official tokoname site and found only one email adress...is that the one you mean, or is there another ?
aunt google didn`t give much about Tokaname Yuyaku .......but maybe i just search the wrong way

kind regards

The Tokoname Yuyaku is the company that publishes that website and catalog. Sort of a co-op of potters in the region. The email address there is the only one I know, and he's very helpful. It's a good guess that it's a 30-40year old Tokoname pot. That's the boom era for output in the region.

i just received answer from tokoname....unfortunately, they also can`t read the hanko, i don`t know if unreadable or unknown.
but what they confirmed is that some poters in tokoname used two types of clay, which is the case with my unknown pot.
it looks unglazed (grey) but due to some small glazing errors you can see that the underlaying clay is different (brown)
it`s obvious on the last foto of the hanko, right side below the hanko is such a small glazing error where the brown underlaying clay is visible.
ok...so this cloud pot will remain as a mystery...... except older one and probably tokoname

kind regards
