Thanks for your submission.
It would have been great to see a picture of the vase also. May I take this opportunity to gently remind visitors that they need to upload photos of the mark and the piece to accompany their submission. This really helps us to give you the fullest possible answer in this public forum. Thanks.....

You could also try gotheborg.com, who specialise in oriental marks.
Hope this helps.
