Could you please help to ID this milk jug? I tried to work out at least when was it manufactured but I still have absolutely no idea... Any info would be much appreciated
Can you supply another photo much closer up of the writing underneath. There is too much glare on the lower right hand characters to be legible enough.
At a quick look though it appears to be Japanese Meiji period, which would put it between 1868-1912. An enamelled Imari/Kutani vase.
Japanese Antique Kutani Porcelain Water Pitcher of Birds and Flowers
Two different jugs? Handle on right, bird scenes are not the same...therefore you have 2 different pitchers. Same colors, style, design, different scene...even the background looks the same, different colors (flash) same texture.
The example I provided was just for reference. Michael said Katani and this one was Katani, with many similarities.
Makes sense, thanx.
Oops, I said Kutani 7 Valleys. Meant to say 9 Valleys.
