The Takahashi family started producing for the export market (mainly USA) in 1872. The kiln was closed in 1894 under the 9th generation Taizan. Since both body and decoration of the flask are marked Taizan, it can be safely accepted that this flask stems from before 1894. After the closing of the kiln, the last Taizan occasionally seemed to have decorated blank objects from other manufactures, among whom Kinkozan.
