Kutani Porcelain

Kutani style porcelain from Japan was made over 300 years ago and continues to be a popular antique item for collectors and enthusiasts. The porcelain is usually white and then decorated with bright colors, patterns and images of Japanese life, animals, plants and people.

Many pieces are available to buy at auction, from small bowls to larger plates and vases. Kutani porcelain can be quite expensive, with the oldest pieces fetching a higher price. Larger pieces of Kutani ware also sell for higher amounts too.

Kutani means nine valleys and it refers to a village. The name "Kutani" is used as a name of pottery and porcelain made at this location, with a variety of small manufacturers rather than just one artist or workshop. It is important to know that Kutani porcelain was made in Japan after the mid-17th century (after 1655). The year of 1655 coincides with the first year of the Myoreki period in Japan. Stones suitable for porcelain making were found in the Kutani mine of the Daishoji Clan, whereupon Lord Maeda Toshiharu sent Goto Saijiro to the Arita Village in the Hizen province to learn how to make porcelain. Kutani Porcelains from this early period are known as Ko-Kutani, and are extremely rare! The production of Ko-Kutani items continued for 50-60 years.
