The Kinkozan family of potters were active from 1645 until 1927 after which the factory closed. The background is that approximately around 1875 Kobayashi Sobei (1824-84) (artist name Kinkozan IV) started to export his products together with the Kyoto manufacturer Taizan VIII. The market was in particular America. Their main production period were approximately between 1875-1927 under the leadership of Kinkozan (1868-1927). Technically specking Kinkozan family wares are not true 'Satsuma' but should be classified as Awata Kyo-yaki.
