Possible Oshima Vase?
Hello, I was directed here from the fine folks at the Asian Art Forum.
My mother had this jar given to her around 40 years ago from her grandfather. She knows little about it and I am trying to gather as much info as I can.
I have been able to determine (by local sushi house owner) that the first character means "Big" and the second means "Island" it was suggested that the third might be a "Oshima Sei" mark.
Can anyone confirm this? If you have any additional information (approximate age, popularity, rarity and of course any recent auctions of this work)I would be very appreciative.
