I have 4 items made in China that my daughter-in-law

Customer Question
I have 4 items...

I have 4 items made in China that my daughter-in-law received from her husbands mother. Her father brought them home from... (not sure which country- Japan or China) when he was in the military. He died at the age of 87 6 years ago and his wife died this year. They have only the info on bottom in red ... Made in China on top, then some Chinese writing under that, then English...SATSUMA. Can you help me find the value???

Expert's Assistant: I always love having an appraiser look at my stuff. Sometimes its turned out to be surprisingly valuable. Is there anything else the Antiques Appraiser should be aware of?

There is a lot of gold in feet, handles, and outline of all the artwork. Extremely heavy also...
