Antique Oriental Vase

I inherited this vase which had been purchased by my grandfather who was an antique dealer. I know nothing about it. There are some markings on the base but I can't match them to any of the tables of recognised marks. The vase is 32cm tall

Can anyone tell me something about the vase and what value it has?

Thanks Peter, at least that narrows it down a bit! Great web site, thanks!

I cannot help with non-Chinese items, this looks Japanese and is possibly a Satsuma ware. The mark reads either Kosan or Furuyama (both readings are correct and used, but depend on whether it is a location or person's name).
This should get you started on further research...
