Hello. Can You help me to translate the mark on this miniature Satsuma vase? I am using your site to learn about Asian works.. Thank you!

The mark simply reads as: Satsuma 薩广 with a simplified 2nd character "Ma" 摩. Often seen in all kind of Satsuma marks.

Yes it is satsuma judging by the cross mark. For future reference always post photos of the item itself also. As a piece can't be judged by the mark alone.
