    Help, can anyone tell me is it Chinese? Is it Japanese? There are no marks of any kind. There are 9 porcelain dish pieces in a square wooden lacquered box, no lid. The bottoms are unglazed and most have rust staining on the bottom. I have learned that Asian porcelain gets rust stains on unglazed feet with age, but I can't find any information on dating. I would appreciate any help / information. Box Measures 11 " x 11 ". Thank you for your help.

      Doing lots of research - I think it's imari ?? and maybe old?
    2. jondal, 5 years ago
      Ok, more info - it's called a "sweetmeat serving dish " still can't confirm if it's Japanese or Chinese or the age. Others I found were mid to late 1800s

      mine is very similar to yours! i've been asking the same questions and getting the same indeterminate answers! have you found anything else like it?

      ho2cultcha - Sorry to say I have not gotten any answers. At least you have had some comments on yours, which is a very nice tray.

      thank you. so is yours. can you post a photo of the laquer box yours came in? top and bottom?
    6. jondal, 4 years ago
      ho2cultcha - mine is missing the top the bottom is brown. I will look for a picture

      thanks jondal. does it have a sticker or signature anywhere? i think it's Japanese 1900-1920. i heard that a lot were made in that timeframe.

      ho2cultcha - thank you - there are no labels or marks but there is rusting on the unglazed bottoms, which i have read occurs naturally on very old porcelain. Early 1900s is a possibility, I have also gotten an age estimate of mid to late 1800s and Japanese from a local collector. I am very much a novice in the Chinese/Japanese porcelain area, but I do love the hunt.
