I did't mind paying a couple of dollars for this even though I knew it wasn't real Satsuma just a copy. All Satsuma is Japanese this piece bears the mark "made in China " so it not pretending to be something it isn't. says : The mark is Zhong Guo Zhi Zao (China Made). In this mark "Zhi Zao" is used which would rather translate as make-something new, to produce something out of raw material- while the more common "Zhi Zuo" could be translated as the more profane manufacture. On Chinese "Satsuma" copy basically "new", possible period (1970's-2000).
So not a fake but a copy. Still think it's nice for the price. -Mike-
