Japanese Pots Galore

Postby Hal » November 9th, 2017, 1:50 pm

Hi Everyone,
While others are chasing Spring carnival in Melbourne we were busy with sorting out our latest acquisition of over 80 Japs pots. These were left collecting dust in a shed from an old couple in Port Melbourne. After spending a couple of hours carefully unpacking and cleaning them we realised we have hit the jackpot as most of the pots are from older generation of pot makers pots from early 40's or possibly earlier during the "Golden Age" era (1921-1941) which ceramic goods were backstamped as "JAPAN" as opposed to "MADE IN JAPAN".

Some interesting readings from http://www.ebay.com/gds/History-of-Made ... 626/g.html

Here are a few photos:

One of the fabulous things about growing bonsai is as you get old and decrepit your trees get old and beautiful

Thanks for asking but not at this stage Daluke as I'm still hungry for more antique Japanese pots :palm: but will certainly keep you in mind if my collection is getting out of hand.

I may have come across this online. So sad I'm not in VIC. Definitely looked like a gold mine, and congratulations on the purchase!

I picked these up a few months ago and did not know the JAPAN stamp was a lot older than others. There's a few others I'm not sure of too.

All the best & happy potting!

spot on Banong on that eBay lot.. There were only a few pots that I suspected Japanese from that photo but only to discovered most were vintage Japs at pickup. Just lucky I guess. :whistle: ...still in a process of identifying those hidden chops :lost:
