Family Dishes

===

These are a few dishes from what remains of the family dishes. They are Kutani, either Kutani Taisho period (1913-1926) or Kutani Meiji (1868-1912). I think they are most likely the latter. Unfortunately, all I have are broken. I did buy one at an antiques fair which is obviously from the same factory.

Our set has the monogram for the eldest son (either DSD or SDD). My GG-Grandfather had them made. They are Kutani porcelain, and, I believe, just over 100 years old. The set originally consisted of dishes for 12 courses and for, I think 80 place-settings. Each couse has a different patterm. Fish course had sea-creatures, poultry dishes had various fowl, and the rice and meat services had landscapes and people, respecitvely. The meat service having people on them was always cause for mirth in the family.

My father received 1/4 of the set, and the were passed along to my brother.
