I don't think it is a valuable collectable pot, it might even be Chinese (based on the apparent weight) but for one Euro, I think it is a good buy? Keeping in mind as an American I have no idea of the current value of a Euro relative to the US Dollar, or how big or small 95 mm is.

Just to show that Florida Crackers can use the internet for other than the IBC, One EURO is equal to about $1.45 USD and 95 mm is about 4 inches.
So this is a smallish pot for about a buck and a half.
A good price even if it is Chinese, and it may be Japanese. But the weight and wall thickness makes me think Chinese.

Hi Ramonan... I am not very skilled at character recognition but radical #52 Wiki link HERE (itogashira, J. or alternatively yao, Ch.) meaning "tiny, dim" appears to be above the character for "mountain" (yama or san, J., or alternatively "shan, Ch.") to suggest the potters art name. If correct, these would suggest a potter known as "Tiny (or Dim) Mountain."

Or maybe not... :-(

Good hunting, in any case!!!

Hello Ramonan. This pot is made by Echizen Bunzan. Some of his pots are quite valued and nice, particularly his multi color glaze pots, and some of his painting pots. This pot retails in Japan for about 1200¥, so at 1 Euro, I think you made out pretty well!
