I Antique Online

A Community For People Who Buy, Sell or Collect Antiques, Collectibles and Art

A little over 60 years ago I used to go to a ladies house who lived next door to my grandmother.  The lady always gave me candy out of this dish.  When she passed away I acquired it, but don't have any idea about it other than on the bottom it says Made in Japan.  There is also another word that looks like "Relation", but I'm just guessing, that may not be what it says. The marking is so smeared.  The size is 5 1/2 inches wide, 4 1/4 inches deep and 6 inches high.

I have tried looking it up online, but have had no luck and have never seen anything like it in antique stores.  So, I'm hoping someone on here recognizes it, can tell me a little about it and although I'm not up for selling it yet, maybe you could tell me how much it's worth, if anything.  Thank you!

Hi, Rose,




What size is your piece?


Carole Bess White

It is 5 1/2 inches wide, 4 1/4 inches deep and 6 inches high.

hi its revelation i think and possibly art deco by the shape - not an expert just my opinion i love oriental items and learn ing about them search using revelation in your key words - thanks kath

- Moriyama In the Revelation pattern Made in Japan. (descibed by ruby lane)

This is a Made in Japan , hand painted pitcher that also has the word, Revelation in its mark. This might just be its pattern name. I did check in my 'Made in Japan' price guides and found that this is a mark from an unknown maker. This pitcher measures 5 1/2" tall and 6" in diameter, about 6 5/8" from handle to spout, Although I see no chips, scratches or other major damage, the piece is highly crazed and when I 'ping' it, it gives a flat tone, not one that resonates, which means that at least one of these crazing's has developed into a crack, one of which I think I can see, going down from the top edge of the pitcher for about an inch. I do date this from the late 1920's or the Art Deco era and the blue, red and green hand painted geometric pattern backs this up

pininterest has one from live auctioneers (not exact like yours)

Thanks Kathy for your help.  I am learning a little more about my jar by folks on here helping me.


me too - and i love it, great place to learn - take care kath
