Subject:Japanese Kutani mark
Posted By: John J Mon, May 24, 2021 IP:

Hi everyone, I would be very pleased if someone could help with my translation of this mark, apologies for the picture quality.

I can't get a few of the characters, so far I have:

大日本 九谷

So I am missing two and may have made errors in the others, tia.

Mark from a small piece of Kutani, probably early 20th century.

For the reading some basic knowledge of Sino-Japanese is required.
