At last somewhere to look at and appreciate Kutani. I have collected for over 30 years and now I can research the pieces that I have.

I have been looking everywhere for information on kutani. Thanks for all the variety that lacks in so many other sites. Keep up the good work and I'll be sure to share your site with my friends and family!

This site is an asset to anyone who collects or sells Kutani. It is an informational asset and adds value to Kutani wares through increased awareness and appreciation. The West has much to learn about Kutani, which of course was not exported as widely as Imari wares. Georges' web site opens the door to the amazing breadth and artistry to be found in Kutani pieces. Sincere thanks, Georges, for the time and care you have put into this wonderful web site.

I have recently come across several pieces of ole Kutani china with a silver bamboo pattern. I could find nothing about it until I looked at your web site. I think it is the same pattern that Julie referred to her question about her set that was in the house fire. I am going to list these pieces on e-bay and also wondered about what price I should start out at. If anyone can help, please let me know. Thanks., Diana

I am interested in finding a certain pattern, it is a white or cream colored background with gold around each plate, bowl, etc. Then it has a dragon and sea urchins also in gold. I have not been able to find anyone that knows anything about. Could you help?

Thanks,
Kathy Schenk

Hello: I just purchased two, small, incredibly detailed Kutani "genie" bottles, with Japanese writing in red on the bottoms, but have no idea as to their age. Don't know if they were made for export or for local use. I wanted to learn about Kutani ware, so I typed "Kutani" in my web browser and your wonderful site showed up. I am certain I will learn much and appreciate the ware so much more, thanks to your dedication on this website. A grateful collector.

My wife was born and raised in Shikoku and has a Kutani tea set she received in 1950s. Unfortunately we were unable to remember where she got it from exactly and also are unable to identify the seal on the bottom of the tea pot from the examples on your site. We need your help to figure out where it was made etc..Will phot help or do you have someone that cane help. She just returned from Japan....

This was a very interesting and helpful sight eventhough, i am still looking to replace my Kutani teapot and matching cup that were broken in a move. If any one can help please email me and I can send pictures. This set was purchased between 1966-68 when we lived at Tachikawa Air Force Base in Japan. The cups and pot have an unidentified English marking on the bottom. There are pictures of 4 geisha girls around the cups and pot, the picture of each girl is from the waist up and each girl is wearing a brown kimono and each kimono has a raised squiggly design two are brown designs, one design is green and the other is blue.

Having had the opportunity to see various Kutani pieces over the years without knowing very much about them (I'm a third-generation Angeleno - more than a bit removed from my ancestors' homeland), it was a pleasant surprise to stumble across this site. I now have a better understanding of why some pieces seem so quintessentially Japanese, while others were, shall I say, merely garish.

I will visit often!

I have visited Ishikawa twice and spent three weeks in Kanazawa but didn't have a chance to see any collections of Kutani Pottery.Perhaps next time..... Thank you for such a beautiful and informative site.

This is the most comprehensive information in English for Kutani I have seen.
I am a dealer of Antiques Porcelain and often I recommend the collector and my
customer to see your site. Good luck for your future publishing book. I look
forward to see the published book too. Sincerely, Edward

Thanks so much for this site. I recently bought a Kutani lithopane tea set knowing absolutely nothing about Kutani. I am learning! My set was purchased by the former owner in either 1946 or 1947 and packed away for all these many years. The set is identical to what I find on these pages has an SPP mark but instead has the Fujiyama symbol and "Hand Painted Japan." Mine possibly was meant for export?
