Hi, the mark inside is the character "Fu" (Happiness).
The one outside is unclear. Although it can be read, it is not clear enough to see a clear image of the strokes, but this is essential as the mark seems to have problems (written incorrectly).
Most likely it is a Japanese item, judging from these pictures, with a spurious Chinese mark.
