Thank you Delia. I appreciate your speedy service and I agree with your appraisal. I will continue to research the mark. I have a couple of artists friends, one of which teaches Japanese and she was confident it was a masters mark. Another Japanese teacher friend suggested Hanko. Its really interesting. Donna
