Thanks much!

The mark reads Gyokuzan 玉山.

Gyokuzan seems to be the art (Go) name of Chin Jukan 12th (1835-1906). Chin Jukan 12th is widely credited for making Satsuma internationally famous. The Chin Jukan kiln is still continued by descendants.
A number of Gyokuzan pieces are in the holdings of the Museum of the Imperial Collections in Tokyo. His pieces are also in the permanent collection of the Tokyo National Museum.
