This appears to be very old to me. The inside has caked dirt on walls like it was buried at some point. The two men look like religious men to me. The back looks like the Arc (Noah"s) on top of a mountain? The writing on the bottom was translated by my Japanese friend as (this is best she can do), TWO GOLDEN BIRD or PHOENIX and MOUNTAIN There is broken piece on bottom, but rest is in great condition. I would love to know the history of this!! Asking for help from all my friends at Collectors Weekly Oh it is 6 inches tall, toracat

    I bought this online and thought it was a Buddhist vase or something, now I am happy I bought it! I paid $30 and thought I overpaid! Thanks Bellin

    Hi toracat, could not find the mark as a kiln, but it is Japanese moriage with two rakans (holy men), and I would guess early 20th century. Really nice piece, you didn't overpay. Regards, jim
