Dear Clare

Thanks for your photo. Not sure where the ware photo went? Did you upload one?

My advice would be to go direct to Gotheborg.com - Chinese & Japanese and Far East porcelain marks.

My knowledge of oriental marks is pretty non-existent.

Otherwise try Whats-it-Worth.

All the best - hope you solve the mystery!

A big thanks to Scott who has come to my rescue and posted the reply in the comments section (see link at bottom of the page).

To summarize, he says it is Satsuma ware, and the raised decoration is a style called Moriage.

Like I keep saying too, Scott says it is difficult to say too much more without seeing the whole item.

SO remember visitors & friends, please upload one photo of the base pottery mark and one of the item (use a new submission form for each photo and we put them together onto one page this end).

Thanks again to Scott for sharing his knowledge

Unidentified Mark
by: Scott (UK)

Hi Clare,
Not certain whether you have identified your mark?

The base and mark (which is all I can see) is almost certainly Satsuma. The raised decoration is a style called Moriage, which takes the form of dots and lines, which, sit in relief of the porcelain. It is difficult to say too much more without seeing the whole item.
I hope this is of some help..:)
Kind Regards
Scott
