      Here’s a link to a great resource for Japanese marks:http://www.gotheborg.com/marks/satsuma.shtml

      Nice find for $5!!!
      Does it have fine crackles in the white? Don't know if the pic gives the right color, as Satsuma is more ivory than white!

      Yeah its Satsuma.

      thanks , stillwater,would appreciate what makes u believe it is a satsuma as i could not verify the marking on base of salt bowl.

      All I can say is "trust me." The fine crazing, the decor, the mark. There's no question that its Satsuma. I'm certain you can find the mark on Gotheborg if you spend enough time looking under the "Satsuma" section. Its a simple two-character one.

      That ivory color on Satsuma is actually staining, since the whole body is finely crazed, moisture gets in and darkens the white porcelain. But not all of it is ivory-colored as kyratango said, some pieces have stayed white or whiter for different reasons, climate, humidity, glazing, firing...

      Japanese and Chinese ceramics are one of my favorite, so I've done a lot of reading and Googling on the subjects. Its definitely Satsuma. Here's the page:

      If you have the time, scan down through the photos looking for your mark. Satsuma was a clan, a region, not the name of a single ceramicist. Within the genre of Satsuma are hundreds of different artists working in that style
