Pair of 6" Satsuma vases I have owned for several years. Bought from a friend's antique/junk store. This design has always confused me. I can never remember whether it is Satsuma or Imari. Thanks for correcting me. I am changing the listing info.

    Any stamps on the botton? Maybe Satsuma repro from 1930's.

    Vintage Joe, have added a pic of the marks on the bottom. These marks mean nothing to me. I really appreciate your input. Hopefully, you can get a little info from them. Any ideas on whether these are 1930's repos? I had thought they were older than that, it never occurred to me they might be that late. The painting is very detailed and rich. Would a better photo help you with the 1930's repro opinion?

    Thanks for the info, JW. I always had a gut feeling they dated to about 1880-1890 (just based upon the painting and design)

    Look this site:
    Stamp 885 is very similar. This kind of stamp it is widely used in 1900-1930(several studio's).
    I have collected japanese and chinese ceramics for several years now.
    It is always hard to say sure from photo, but difficulty of asian ceramics is reproduction of old items. They copy stamps too.
    I don't want disdain any items here, anyway these vases are very good find to anyone today.

    Thanks for the interest. I know marks are sort of questionable on many Asian items. It is interesting there might be such a large difference in the age depending on the opinion. I'd be happy to try to take a couple of more detailed pics if anyone is interested. This is what I like about collecting items, I learn something every day.

    You've gotten quite a bit of info already, the ball's in your court now in terms of researching
