My husband inherited this piece just a couple of years ago, but can’t find anything about it, or how his aunt acquired it. It appears to be written in Russian and I googled what I thought would be a close to an English translation and found Kunashiri Island. I found out that Russia took over a small island with this name in the 18th century, which had belonged to Japan.
I may be barking up the wrong tree but the decoration does have a Japanese influence. I am not suggesting this is old, but really need help with the translation and the maker’s mark, as I have come up empty handed !
Anyone read Russian?
