Eagle & sun mark?

Hi there! Have only this poor quality photo of marking. The central part is not readable to me. Perhaps, Mexico or Peru, but this is only my assumption. Maybe someone saw this marking before? Thanks! http://i.piccy.info/i9/b75f7d15d2fce670ba04a267e9b048f2/1450461130/33031/896328/mark.jpg http://i.pi...

Miyamoto-Shoko cigarette case?

Hello forum! Just received it, marked 純銀 and 宮本? (i don't sure about last kanji). The design with flying cranes and ocean waves remind me pieces of Meiji period, filled with the truly spirit of old Japan. So this is Miyamoto-Shoko? Meiji or later? Someone can help me read the artist name? http://i.p...

Re: Chinese Hallmark on Set of 3 Bowls

Hi there! For me it looks like japanese. The writing on the cup is left to right, so it is likely to be a prewar. The inscription on the cup says - 念記解散 / 撫順炭販賣株式會社 Rough translation "In Memory Of Dissolution, Fushun Carbon Trading Ltd". The marking on the bottom "銀純" (pure silve...

Japanese dessert set. Help with maker & period.

Hello forum! Can someone tell me when was made this set? Unfortunately, the maker name on the inner strip completely faded away, seen this maker logo before, but I can't remember where. There is also a "STAINLESS" mark on all cutlery. http://i.piccy.info/i9/8e780f7f193cf4f072a294f4d04b2eb6...

Re: Japanese cigarette case with family crest?

Thank for your answers!
When googled a bit, i found a very similar cigarette case with the same crest and in original box, marked "銀鈴木製"

Tomorrow I'll examine more, but it looks like my cigarette case don't have hallmarks or maker's mark.

Re: Japanese cigarette case with family crest?

I finished my little research - this crest belongs Princely House of Yamashina. On another site someone opined that cigarette case can be an imperial gift... Anyway, for me it's a nice thing, full of Japanese minimalism. http://i.piccy.info/i9/0f434ba9696b6f05fbb64868752ed672/1437495290/28921/896328...
