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.
