Not me. I had a native Japanese speaker at Yahoo Answers translate this for me. He didn't really elaborate on why he does not think the pot was made by Gyozan. My guess is that there are probably a lot of fakes floating around in the market. Those who seek to make a non-honest profit.
Thank you, I guess the only safe way to know for sure, would be to get it straight from the maker. I appreciate your input. I will keep trying to seek more about this pot. I'm not too concerned about any loss I would take, but I would like some authenticity when & if I display a tree in this pot.
Hey all, I emailed Ryan Bell http://japanesebonsaipots.net/ Ryan says Yorozuen is one of the most reputable bonsai nurseries and pot sellers in Japan. The signature clearly reads :Gyozan Made", however, he cant attest to whether its Yuuji (son) or father Nakano Yukizou. He also said Yorozuen is one of the highest of provenances out there, so if they say its Yuuji, He wouldnt doubt it at all.
I bought the pot on ebay from Yorozuen & it was advertised as "Nakano Gyozan" so I will take it as that. I have also seen pots from Yorozuen advertised as "Yuuji Gyozan" son of Nakano Gyozan, which leads me to believe Yorozuen knows the difference between father & son.
I'm satisfied with this information & I thank Ryan Bell again
Hey All, I also emailed Peter Tea about this pot. Most of you know Peter, but if you dont, he is a 3rd year apprentice in japan at Aichi-en Bonsai Nursery. Peter writes a great blog about his experience at Aichi-en Bonsai Nursery, check it out! http://peterteabonsai.wordpress.com/
Anyways, Peter & Mr. Junichiro Tanaka (owner & Oyakata at Aichi-en) took a look at the pics I sent & said, it looks like the real thing!
Thank you Peter Tea!
