      I WAS JUST LOOKING THROUGH THE IMAGES OF OTHER ASIAN VASES, AND FOUND THE SAME SIGNATURE ON ITEM #424. THERE WAS SOME REFERENCE TO KUTANI IN THE COMMENTS. ALSO A REFERENCE TO NIPPON. SOMETHING I CAN RESEARCH.

      It’s the best Japanese version of Gouda that I’ve ever seen.
    3. vetraio50 vetraio50, 3 years ago
      The signature needs to be rotated 90 degrees to the right.
    4. vetraio50 vetraio50, 3 years ago
      I think it is Satsuma.

      It looks like an imitation of a Dutch pottery called Mijnlieff.

      Quite something actually.
    6. vetraio50 vetraio50, 3 years ago
      That would date it to the late nineteenth century to about 1910. Jan Willem Mijnlieef set up the company called “Aardewerkfabriek Fayence-en Tegelfabriek Holland” in Utrecht, Holland in 1894.

      Brantjes Purmerend also worked in something similar.

      Thank you. This is great Information. Definitely Gouda in style. Now if I can only find the Japanese part of this puzzle. JOHN

      The mark says KINKOZAN, NIPPON.
      Kinkosan was a well known Kyoto Satsuma kiln.
      I have an art deco vase made by Kinkozan in 1920-30s.

      Thank you very much for this information. This completes the picture. JOHN
