Hello,
I was wondering if someone here would be able to translate the text on this pottery piece. It has been in my family for many years and has always puzzled my family as to what it says.
Any help would be much appreciated.
Crafter.

I was just advised on another forum that it translates as... "Flower Transport" or "Flower Transport Boat"

Could this possible have 2 translations? I am confused.

The person misread the first character as 華

Thanks Mike,

So Toritoribe's translation is correct?
My being called on to verify a native speaker's answer is a novelty....

Yes, it is correct.

Out of curiosity, what was the other forum? Can you give us a link to the post, please?

I see.

Tell Bill H. he overlooked the absence of the three stroke bit at the top.
