    I found this Satsuma Egg today for a great price and I'm hoping it's authentic! I don't know the markings on it but there is a #8 in the triangle.

    It's a little over 6" tall and so pretty. When I looked them up, I saw they go for well over $200.00

    Am I right? And is this American Satsuma?

    Thanks for any input!

      Aww :/ I can understand that very well! I bought three sterling and torquoise rings today and I took a pic with my iPad and man, the contrast is so crazy that it would hurt eyes!

      Wow Sue this is gorgeous.
      Surely authentic with the quality and stamp, but I'll let the experts confirm!

      It's beautiful Sue and a nice size too. I have one as well that I posted ages ago. It's a bit smaller and I believe a bit newer than the one you have.

      It's a very pretty piece, I love it, the detail is wonderful. I really don't know anything about Satsuma, my eyes tell me quality.

      What you have is a Satsuma "style" egg, probably chinese made. Real antique Satsuma was created and made in the Meiji Period (1868-1912), Japan didn't start using english lettering until the 1940's. Antique Satsuma has hand painted makers marks in kanji script (usually with the Shimazu family crest at the top-cross in circle) . Antique Satsuma is known for a warm beige crackle finish and comparitively minimal decoration. Around the 1970's other countries started mass producing fakes like Royal Satsuma, Gold Satsuma and Satsuma-Made in China. My best advice, if you like it, keep it! (if you want some cool history, google the Shimazu Satsuma Clan)
