    Japanese Plate Help cyberdan

    CyberDan if youíre out there can your wife help me with the characters on the back of this plate my mom picked up at a garage sale. It was picked up in Japan by the owners parents in the 40s or 50s. I just havenít been able to figure out what the signature is. Click image for larger version.

    Top right character can mean 'big.' Others...would have to research.

    Beautiful plate!
    Yup...I'm 'that pen person.'

    JimDon, we tried. Japanese is so complicated. We have 26 letters! They have 4 alphabets, I think. She can read it but not understand it. She thinks it is the pottery company and city.

    One thing she picked out was "imari ware" do a google.

    Yeah, I don't know who made it but it's definitely an Imari charger.

    Imari pottery used to have excellent collector value. Unfortunately, the market for it has pretty much died over the last ten years. Only the most exceptional pieces hold any real value. The fact that this is signed is not necessarily a game changer. There were hundreds of imari factories in Japan, and some date back hundreds of years. You would have to have that dish evaluated to determine its value, but it is highly unlikely that you will have found a real treasure. It's a nice piece, but not unusual by any means that I can see.
    If you go to Christies auction house online, they have a free evaluation program on there by experts. It will give you an idea of its true worth.
    Cheers!
    (I lived in Japan for a cumulative 15 years of my life, and speak the language fluently. In addition, I am a licensed Auctioneer and have put a lot of asianware through my auctions. My family has LOTS of Imari from the time my father was in Japan during the Occupation, as well as other artwork, some of which IS in fact very valuable. I wouldn't hold my breath on this piece, but you never absolutely know.)
    People who think they know everything are a great annoyance to those of us who do.

    Stick around. We need a go to person for Asian collectibles and such. Sounds like you may have more hands on knowledge in that field than the rest of us.
