    Hi everyone, I would appreciate any help with an ID for the maker.
    I bought this vase at auction, I hadn't planned on doing so but it was going to cheaply go not to.
    The auction listing had it written up as a Late Meiji Period Satsuma Vase. (That's all they wrote) but I quite liked the look of it.
    As you can see, it is signed in gilt to the foot on a black cartouche beneath the Mon of the Shimazu Clan (Daimyo of Satsuma Han) but this far I haven't been able to identify the maker (have looked thoroughly on Gothenburg but I may have missed it).
    Any help greatly appreciated.

      what happened here is rather captivating i think they peeled off the Sarashina Zo ( a rather small kiln) and made it into a plain Sarashina

      this is hard to date , because you almost never see them , so i am not sure but might be Taisho one period
