Hello everyone. I wanted to get these posted to have some opinions on them. I already have my opinion, that is, that they are fantastic. I believe they are called Brush Pots. Not 100 percent sure.
I am looking for someone with expertise in this area to help me date these. A few things to note....
The insides of the two are unglazed. The lip of each is slightly rounded, and obviously the two pictures differ. One has a dragon moving toward a ball in the middle. Both have the same lettering on the back of the pot. I mean...to me these look old. Under high magnification I see some tiny holes in the glaze. Also, they're are tiny hairline fractures in some areas. The bottom shows wear but nothing to indicate they are hundreds of years old.
I studied the two pots based on their features instead of the mark at the bottom. I would, however, love to know more about these marks. Thanks for looking!!!
