Vintage circa 1930s MORIYAMA JAPAN POTTERY PLANTER ~ 9" Long SCHNAUZER Terrier DOG
Mark : Stamped Moriyama over flower basket Japan. The flower basket is identical to the occupied Japan stamp in Gotheborg's guide which leads me to believe that it dates from 1930-1944. Measurements ( WxHxD ) : 9 x 5.5 x 3 inches Condition : See photos and use zoom to fully evaluate condition. No crazing, cracks or breaks. One tiny chip on rim of planter hole.
Moriyama Pottery was located in MoriMachi in Shizuoka prefecture. Moriyama Pottery was established in 1911 by Hidekichi Nakamura who was taught pottery making by Seison Suzuki. There are currently four studios continuing the Moriyama tradition in and around Morimachi and they are Seison, Seizon, Nakamura and Tame. There seems to be two primary stamps: one appears to be a crown with a wreath of leaves similar to the wreath found on the Noritake stamp. This stamp is marked "Moriyama Hand Paint Japan." The other is a bouquet of flowers and is marked "Moriyama Made in Japan." The MM MARK, stands for 'Moriyama Morimachi' and has been referenced to the Moriyama Factory at Morimachi Shizuoka Prefecture Japan
