Trying to Identify: Japanese Sushi Plate Markings

Posted by lynnebiz (My Page) on

Hi - I'm new to the site (well, I actually belonged to Gardenweb ions ago, but forgot all my info) & hope someone can help me.

I have some sushi plates with matching chopstick holders - I'm trying to identify the maker, but haven't been successful. From the style, I'd guess (that's about the extent of my expertise, lol) that it's 20th century, probably late. I bought them at a yard sale this summer, just because I liked them.

Figured the easiest way for me to handle trying to share photos is with Picasaweb. Here's the link:

I've searched online at various guides with photos for hours, but haven't come up with anything. The marking in blue is on the back of the chopstick holders - but on the back of the sushi plates, there's an imprint. My photos (esp. of that) isn't the best.

Thanks so much for any help!

RE: Trying to Identify: Japanese Sushi Plate Markings

I don't think I can help, but those are lovely. I have seen a lot of sushi plates but never anything other than square. The little one look to me like they're meant to hold fixings - wasabi, soy sauce - not just chopsticks? But what do I know, I buy my sushi in a package :-)

The only thing I can think of doing, other than asking someone (and I might run into someone, you never know), is to see if the island on the rounded bowls matches one of the Japanese islands?
