Found this at an estate yard sale approx. 8 yrs. ago and paid $60.00 for it. It appears to be porcelain with perhaps gold inlay. I have searched many books for the signature mark but have come up empty. Anyone have a clue?

Hey again,

The vase is likely a Japanese Satsuma piece after the Famile Verte designs of Chinese export. No concrete information on the age, but would guess first half 20th century, simply by the complex gilt design over the red ground. That seems to be a common trait of Japanese piece of the era.

The mark doesn't appear to be Chinese, possibly Arabic or Turkish? The teapot looks similar to others I've seen from Turkey. The round, red eyelet above the handle allows a neck loop to attach thereby allowing easier pouring. The design on the other hand is definitely Chinese. The bird is a Heron and I believe the bush is a Chrysanthemum. You might focus your investigation in that direction. Good luck.
This ewer seems to be influenced by Chinese pieces of the Yuan & Ming dynasties, which in their turn were based upon metalwork from the middle east & central Asia. I also considered a possible Japanese attribution but the fact that it bears a nonsense mark suggests to me it`s of European manufacture, it also doesn`t appear to have very much age.




Go on this website and you'll find the mark :)
