    I have a total of 30 pieces of this porcelain set that includes a teapot, plates in 3 different sizes, rice bowls w/ lid, individual rice bowls, cups & individual teapots?. I tried looking through Gotheborg, but did not see anything like this mark, but that doesn't mean it is not there. :bag::bag: :rolleyes::rolleyes:

    I think the second picture is the correct orientation.

    I don't know for sure, but I think it might be from the Satsuma region.
    I'm guessing 1960s/70s or later.

    Maybe @blooey has some thoughts.

    Sorry, all i can say is it's a nice porcelain set and looks like it was made for Asian style dining, not super old, possibly late 20thc.

    Thanks Pat & blooey!! :happy::happy::happy:

    I was fairly certain it was likely from the 1980's or 1990's. The pieces were part of all that stuff I bought from the "lady with a severe buying problem" last year. I will lay odds they were never used & there may have been more pieces that got packed elsewhere.

    I am trying to decide if they are worth bothering with selling on eBay or if I should just take them to the local consignment shop. The weight of the box will likely be around 18 to 20 pounds, so shipping is going to be high.

    However, it is hard to do any real research when you can't decipher the mark or even know for sure if it is upside down or not. :bag::bag: :rolleyes::rolleyes::rolleyes: :p:p :D:D

    You could break the set up a little for eBay sales (and consign the rest). I feel the serving bowl (far left) and the conical bowls (far right) would attract buyers.

    It's a pretty pattern.

    That is a possibility, but it would still help for someone to decipher the mark. :happy::happy:

    I wonder if @Couch Potato Wannabe could help me. :happy::happy:

    The second photo has the text the right way up.

    庫山 = Kasuyama/Kurayama/Kakoyama in Japanese depending on the anglo conversion used and can also be written as Kozan Gama.
    庫山窯 = Kozan Gama Kiln is a company still in operation, although they do have a different mark, perhaps yours could be a forerunner.

    Kozan Gama Kiln
    Late 20th century, company still in operation.
    Maebata China Corporation, Tajimi City, Gifu, Japan.

    Not sure where you live but in US you can do a flat rate box up to 70 lbs if it would fit.

    It would not fit, but thanks for the idea.

    I was surprised & found some fairly decent sales of Kozan Gama on eBay. I am going to try breaking up the set to sell. I thought I would put the large teapot & the 6 cups together. The large round plates & the rectangular plates together. The 2 large rice bowls & the small rice bowls together.

    That leaves the small round plates & the smaller pots. I am not sure if the pots were for Sake or maybe individual teapots. What does everyone else think?

    Also, on the flowers they look like Chrysanthemums to me. What do you think?

    Thanks again to everyone for their help!!! :kiss::kiss: :happy::happy::happy::happy:
