My wife's parents brought this piece back from Japan in I believe the late 1980's, most likely from Kyoto or other well know pottery city. It is irregular in shape and about 21 inches at the widest part and about 11 inches deep. The height is 2 inches and the measurement form the inside base to the edge is 1.25 inches deep.
I'm unsure of the intended use, possibly it has something to do with Ikebana, as my mother in-law was very much into Japanese flower displays.
I photographed the potters mark on the back of the piece. I'm not sure I have it properly displayed, but I hope I do.
Haven't been able to identify who the potter is hoping to get some advice here both on the potter and intended use of the piece.
Thanks in advance for any advice or help.
