A hand-painted, incomplete base mark reads Arashi-yama (嵐山). Arashiyama is the name of a district, located on the outskirts of western Kyoto, and is also the name of a nearby mountain. Although several kilns were historically located in Arashiyama, neither is known to have produced pottery with this mark. Morse (1901:253) mentions several stonewares bearing the Arashiyama mark but notes that no information is available about the maker or kiln and speculates that these wares may have been made elsewhere and only sold at Arashiyama. The meaning and the provenience of this mark remain unknown.
