These cups are 2.5" tall x 3.5" diameter x 1.5" base, signed on the bottom, with wooden box and ribbon. These were purchased in Seoul, Korea in the early 1980s and the seller thought they were Korean made. I see some Japanese characters and some I do not recognize. My study of Japanese pottery often mentions the Korean origins of some Japanese pottery, so I became curious and started keeping an eye out for some modestly priced Korean art pottery and came across this set. I do not know anything about Korean pottery, but have seen some similar Korean cups with crane and cloud motif in celadon glaze. I bought these as a learning experience. Can anyone tell me anything about these cups or some good on line sources about Korean pottery to get me started?
