Antique Japanese Works of Art

Welcome to the Gotheborg. The field of Asian Ceramics collecting is a challenging one. Not the least due to the large number of terms of various origins, problem compounded by a variety of spellings and transcriptions. Many terms in particular regarding porcelain exported to the west are made up by collectors and dealers over the last century, and are not recognized or even understood in China. When possible I have tried to address this by cross referencing both terms and explain where the understanding differ. Names, meanings and categories also change depending on new discoveries, which might not be as helpful as it might seem. Too myopic classifications might just complicate matters. Here I try to go back to the roots and explain why an older but somewhat incorrect name might still be more helpful than a modern but archaeologically correct name. Many names and terms that are Chinese in origin have been transcribed in western characters.

One guideline to help you guess age can be the country of origin. Here are a few rules of thumb to apply. Before , items imported into the United States were not required to contain a mark showing the country of origin. Many items were marked, of course, but they were “prestige” items – European china for example – where the manufacturer and importer thought the source was a favorable selling point. These “prestige” marks will name the manufacturer as well as the country and are normally very elaborate looking things with lions and crowns and coats of arms and so on – all intended to impress the brash Yankees.

Items without a mark were either domestic American production, non-prestige imported production, or imported production that wasn’t specifically produced for the American market.
