Orange Bowl, Possibly Japanese, Need help identifying Please :-)
I found a bowl recently and have not been able to find anything that looks like it anywhere. It is orange with a kind of flower petal effect on the rim. There are also sort of grooves on the outside. The overall effect is kind of like a flower. There is a triple stripe painted on the outside which is black, yellow, and then black again. The inside shows a courtesan or lady and a man in robes with a tree and small table.
Overall it is very interesting although I am wondering if it is western made since the signature is a single character. I believe japanese pieces often have the same simple signature. Sadly there are two chips on the rim, one of which has been repaired.
Does anyone have any insight into this bowl or perhaps you could point me in the right direction? Again I have done extensive Google searching including many pages of images with no success.
