To me, it doesn't look like an expensive pot. The hole is pretty small, and looks like it was punched through while the clay was still wet. "Good" pots don't often come with drip trays. And 1955 certainly doesn't make it antique.

Well, I wouldn't be ay all surprised if it was from 1955. And yes, I would bet that it's a genuine Chinese or Japanese pot.

Everything Jim says is correct. Don't quit your job.

Hello barge bonsai,

I'm sorry to disappoint you even more than Jim and Russell already did.
In Germany, many of these pots are available, often in Ebay or so. They are not old at all and very cheap, they cost only a few Euros.
They come with cheap Asian bonsai plants or are sold in supermarkets and building supplies stores.
The numbers imprinted in the bottom of the pot are not a production date, I'm quite sure of that.

Thanks peeps,Heike we bought the pot at a street sale in Leer Ost Friesland for 50 cents.

The Japanese probably wouldn't claim it either!

Use the tray for kusamono/kokedama.
