Good morning NMB,

I recently acquired an Iga chawan and am hoping to find out who's hand it's by. Usually I can piece it together but the translation on Yahoo.JP came through very messy on this listing.

Any help would be greatly appreciated, thank you!

Left side:   Shot in the dark as  "Nobu Mitsu" ? 

Right side: Iga Cha Bowl

 

Waiting for the official read from one of our pros.

I think the left is the same as in the red stamp, so probably not Nobumitsu.....
Right side might be “伊賀 茶器” as suggested by Curran.

Uwe:  器  or  盤    ?

 

Just slowly learning Japanese here, though I've accelerated it considerably the last year.

Curran,

Steve is right. I picked the wrong kanji, 器 (utsuwa). It, however, can also be read as bowl or vessel, but not in this case.

Thanks so much for all the help gentlemen!

Steve, you're good... That's my guy, found an image of his incised signature and it's a match for my chawan. Can't thank you enough!
