Hello gang! I picked up a small asian vase, stands at only 4", and I was hoping to find out the age and or maker of this piece from the stamp on the bottom. I have searched this website and online to no avail. Please see pics and thanks in advance for any help!

Other than that this is Japanese and the mark possibly reads Tashusan or Denshusan (the first character can be read both ways) I cannot help.
There are other readings possible, as names may be read differently in Japanese, depending on the individual case, even if the characters are the same.
The Japanese internet does not provide any help to whether this is a person's or place name.
