chinese ? vase

by May Hanwith-Horden

I have inherited this vase almost 20 years ago. Prior to that it belonged to my mother and she was given it about 20 years earlier by a friend who originally came from USA and who had had it for quite some time.I just have some dried grasses standing in it on a low table and wondered if I should be looking after it a bit better. I have no idea what it is or how to work anything out from the markings - have tried on the internet but can make no sense of it all.

Hello,
This is a Japanese vase, and for this reason I cannot tell you much about it. I believe it could be at least fromt he first half of the 20th century judging from the mark.
You could try asianart.com. Some of their forum members have experience with Japanese ceramics.
