This little pot has been a mystery for a very long time, too long!
I picked it up at a Vinnies over twenty years ago.
It is small!
It is only 8 cm tall = 3.4 inches.
The glaze is very thick and has gathered beautifully around the foot. It just adds a plumpness to the form of the piece.
On the surface of the pot is a a landscape of a waterfall and a flowering tree. The background is a drip glaze of brown on grey. The enamel decoration has been added over the glaze in blue, brown, green, purple and red enamels. It is signed in red, which is typical of Kutani signatures.
The top two characters are "Ku tani" - nine valleys.
Any help with this one would be appreciated.

    Hello V. How are you? Odd for us to be hitting the C W at the same time. Change your mind about the candle sticks?

    Hi Amber. Just back from the shops.
    I should never have refused your kind offer.
    I did not mean to be rude.
    It's just that Paolo has put the foot down and wants me to get rid of it all.
    What's the Perth reference?

    Lived in your part of the world for 18 months. Spent a couple of weeks in Perth and met some nice folk. They were having a party and invited me as the "token" American. I walked into the party and immediately ran into an old classmate of mine. Small, small world. I ran into him last year and we immediately started laughing.
    Tell Paolo I will include homemade cookies with the candlestick package...just for him:))

    Can I at least swap you something?

    Goodness V, my thrift candlesticks are paultry to your lovely collection. I would be thrilled to gift them to you. Hubby is not in love with them and I would like to see them go to an appreciative home. My email is on my profile, send me your address and I will send you a friend care package. Cookies included for Paolo.
