I have seen a number of names attached to this type of crude export ware from Japan. It is probably not Sumida, but I have seen them called poo ware to describe the raised relief decoration set into the body of the piece. You can see a Buddha Figure. This piece is in excellent condition and double marked, Made in Japan on bottom and a stamp boxed glyph on the back bottom that I can not make out. This piece is about 5 3/4" tall. It is at least 70 or 80 years old.

Smoking items and souvenirs may not always reach the level of art and skill that this metal ashtray achieves. It is a really beautiful example of souvenir tourist craft. It is a white metal base with glass dome covering the Nikko temple. Marked "MADE IN JAPAN". It is 5" diameter and has no damage, was never used for its intent. It has great decorations around the outside also. An attractive conversation piece and a collectible that will grow in value.

Deep recession has a wonderful Temple view with tiny shrine. A real collectible, no damage and 6" tall. Probably from the early third of the 20th Century.

Yes they are salt and pepper, but they were made by one of the finest porcelain-china companies that ever existed. Toshikane in Arita Japan. The company that made these 50 year plus old figures was famous for making top of the line small tiles for jewelry. Faces, fans, flowers, asian icons decorated their high fired china tiles. These tiles in jewelry sell for hundreds of dollars each. I did not know that this company made anything but jewelry insets until I found a pair of foo dogs and then thi ...click for details
