Two Old Japanese Ceramics

These two pieces were given to us when we first visited Japan in 1978.  The round dish is Ko-Kutani (Old Kutani) and is about 200 years old. The signature underneath is said to be that of Kakiemon.  The oblong dish is an early Imari and, like the Kutani dish, is hand painted with a cobalt decoration.
