All these signatures bear the Kaga no Kuni mark. It means that these ceramics were produced in Kaga Han (today Kanazawa)

Kaga Han and Daishoji Han merged in 1871 to give Ishikawa prefecture. However at this period the name Kaga was widely used in Japan and also overseas to designate more generally the ceramic produced in the area. The name Kaga was later replaced by Kutani.
