OGURUSU & CO. 小栗栖

HISTORY

Ogurusu brand had been producing the Satsuma porcelain pieces during the Meiji era.

Satsuma dish by Ogurusu.

Satsuma vase by Ogurusu.

Althougth there is no connection between the Satsuma porcelain and the Nunome Zogan, signatures on either works are so similar that it can be concluded it is the same maker. Possibly, Ogurusu produced Satsuma works as a main product and started to create damascene cigarette cases at some point in the company's history, probably after Zogan works became wery popular in the market.
