    This is a vase that I own. I have been researching it & reached a brick wall. Some say that it is Japanese, some Chinese. Rare color? Thought I would ask your opinion.

      This is Japanese Satsuma ware. The upper character (?) means nigi "Right". That gives an indication that it is 1 of a set of vases and that it is the right vase. I think the other character (?) means "nine".

      I'm sorry but this website can not handle Japanese characters or symbols.
      The upper symbol is:

      and the bottom one:
