Two new Aquisitions

This decorated plate is one of Estelle's early pieces and has been given to me on long term loan for my collection. The small lidded jar I found in an antique shop in Raglan (Waikato, New Zealand) last week.  The markings underneath have confirmed that the pot is from Tamba and was made at the Tanbun Pottery in Tachikui, Japan.  Looking at their web site I think it may have been made by Hisao Onishi as his work looks very similar but I may be wrong.
