The mark is Japanese for "Imari" (伊萬里), although you'll also see "伊万里", using the more common Japanese variant for "萬". The latter appears on what I think may be made in China transfer-decorated attempts at copying the famous Kutani cat (photos below) and other figurines. The truth is out there somewhere.

Best regards,

Bill H.
