Hi, I'm curious to know who might have made this- any thoughts appreciated. I suspect it's Chinese  :-\


It weighs just over 1kg
Its height is 21cms (about 8.5")
It has an oval polished out pontil mark.

Thanks for looking
Scott

Hello Scott  -  I notice one or two internet sites - including Emmi Smith - are saying that this label is 'most likely Japanese'............   I like the colours tho. :)

Hi Scott, the Japanese firm Kamei looks a good bet for your piece.  :)

and older than you think. Foreign was used in the UK post-war on labels for items imported from japan and Germany so as not to deter buyers
