    Hello friends,
    can you please help me to identify this mark?
    I can't find it on Gotheborg.
    It should be a Japanese plate.
    Its diameter is 21.5 cm
    Thanks for your help

    The mark is right side up. The lower character usually stands for "Made" in English.

    Thanks AJ, the site you gave me is beautiful, but even there I could not find this brand.
    I inverted the image, thank you very much :)

    There are plenty of marks that Gotheborg has not been able to document, so you should try other sites - in particular the one that AJ has posted. I do not feel sufficiently knowledgeable on dating this style to venture a guess for you. It is very pretty, though!

    It is Japanese Satsuma ware probably c1930-1950. Not a Meiji piece

    Thanks a lot :happy: @John Brassey
    A question, which will allow me to learn: from what do you assume that it does not belong to the Meiji period and that it is around 1930 - 1950?

    Bakers! Your original picture is correct, and she correctly said the bottom character means "made" or "made by."

    I may be a bit late with my first suggestion as a piece from that period would usually be marked Japan or Made in Japan. I have seen a lot of pieces similar to yours marked like that hence my feeling that it is second quarter 20thc but I still feel that it is 20th century.

    That is purely my opinion as someone who has collected Satsuma for many years (sold most now).

    The other character bears no resemblance to any character I have ever seen that way up, even the strokes are awkward and appear written upward, so sorry, but I stick to my assessment, your reading of the "bottom character" notwithstanding
