I found this in a Panama City beach shop about 10 years ago. I saw them and couldn't pass them up because of the box they were in. When I took a better look at them and the note taped in the lid after I bought them , I just had to do some research on the names. I had heard of Edith Head, but not the sender. I have put the information of what I found on the in the photo below the box. I just hope this is a real find. Maybe someone can tell me more? I hope I am putting this in the right category. Help?

    Lovely interesting set of Kutani bowls.
    The bowls are marked beneath in red, typical of Kutani wares.
    Kutani means "nine valleys".
    The two characters are those on the left of each bowl.
    To their right are four characters that will give you the name of the maker, I suppose.

    By the way the Edith Head provenance is interesting in itself!
