approx 8 this is inside cap piece and the same symbol on bottom base

We thought this was a Chinese ginger jar but the markings on the bottom base and inside cap piece are an unknown hand-painted symbol measuring 1/4". Any guidance on this unknown symbol would be appreciated.

Hi Ron,
This is not a Chinese jar. It could be Japanese, though.
I would try asianart.com, as there are some people specialized on Japanese items there.
