Hello all. I am trying to identify the Japanese ceramic artist who created a plate and I have the original shipping box from the 1950s. Was hoping it has some clue in the hand written marks as to who the artist may be.
If anyone has any help for me I would greatly appreciate it.
I posted a picture of the chop mark as well, however I know those are highly specialized.

It was shipped by Hisashi Hori, From Nishinomiya City.

It was shipped to a business in Tokyo's Aoyama.

Perhaps made by Tezuka Zenri (Zenri Tezuka)

The addressee would be someone(Murakami?) in Tokyo Chiropractic Center.

Thank you very much for the helpful translation! That is exactly what I was looking for and will definitely lead me in the right direction. I tried to donate but got denied since I was in the US and not Japan. Is there a way for me to chip in?
Thanks again!
