Old and beat up, but still "pure silver," with the jungin
Does the archaic kanji (or "seal script" ?) below the jungin
refer to a maker? If so, who?
Any ideas regarding age?
I have read on this forum that this style jungin
mark was rarely (if ever?) used in China before 1949, so I am assuming this bowl is Japanese.
