Astronomical Surface Decorations on Ceramics, Japan part VII.
Still not much luck-
I used the modern Japanese names for the signs of the zodiac, as shown on Judy Shorten's site. (She does nice constellations on terami, Japanese woven thread balls.)
I then searched on Google for ceramics that had those zodiac names in their description... to no avail.
I was getting towards the end of my search when I stumbled upon this 19th C Satsuma Vase with Zodiac Animals so I am not at a complete loss.
