image002  I was hoping you could help me in determining what, when, where and who made this, what I believe is a saki cup.  It has some Japanese writing on it and a maker's mark on the bottom.  I have included pictures of it for determination.  Thank you in advance for any pertinent information you may give me.  Lisa Newton


image002  Well, about the cup. Indeed mystery. As the size is unknown, it is not possible to say if it is a tea cup or sake cup. Anyhow I have never seen a Japanese cup with carving. The carving looks to me hand-made. The cup has some cracks which show it is not ceramic but earthenware -- cheaper product. The inside is nicely glazed but not outside. That is rare, too. The kanji reads NIKKO, the place where the Toshougu shrine is situated. No maker's signature. Amateurs work?
