Nothing speaks of the Edwardian era more clearly then the series of china produced by Royal Doulton of England. This china was designed by John Holdcroft, and was known as the Motorist Series. This series was produced in its factory in Burslem England from the years 1903-1913.

Japanese auction watch(10/28/08) This item was up for auction in March of 08 in Japan. It is a set of 5 cups from a kiln called the Akashi kiln listed at 3 inches by 3 inches by 2 inches. They don’t come with a box. The minimum price was 5,000 yen. They didn’t sell. Either someone wasn’t looking for that particular item or they were priced too high at the beginning.
I just got back from a three day trip to Yamaguchi in the West of Japan. From my house roughly 8 hours by car with my family. It was the first time I have been there. It is well known for the hot springs that are everywhere. I took the waters and thought of Baden Baden.
Oribe tea bowl(10/18/08) This is an Oribe tea bowl from the Momoyama period, 1467-1603. It doesn’t have any chips or other defects. The box says Kohori Kishinan, previously known as Somei Masanori, see http://www.enshuryu.com/e-enshuryu.htm. I am unsure of the reading for his given name. Mr. Kohori was the 11th. head of the Enshu Ryu school of tea、see http://www.enshuryu.com/e-index.htm.
Japanese Antique “Smalls”(10/13/08) Greetings, all! I started out collecting Lladró Spanish porcelain, which quickly led me to other areas, including Asian porcelains. I started out with Chinese porcelains but quickly learned that the field of Japanese porcelains was more rewarding because it was somewhat easier to ascertain the correct origin and age of items than it is with Chinese porcelains.
