Satsuma. Mark: The three top characters read, from right to left - Dai Nippon. The four characters in the centre read Satsuma, Jitsu Sei. The three on the right read Choshuzan i.e. the potter, and the three on the left, Kagetsu Ga - painter. The large square character seems to read either Maru, or Tsubaru meaning round or circular, it may be a studio mark. Date: from the later part of the Meiji (1868-1912) period.
Considering its age, it is in wonderful condition. No fading to the colors. There is crazing. No chips or cracks. The very bottom has some hairline marks but nothing that goes through; can be seen in the second to last picture.
