The mark reads: Yamasei 山清 Sei 製 (made by Yamasei), but the name could also be Yamasho or Yamashin, although Yamasei is the most likely name.
The dating is around 1880, very much in the Imari Arita style of well know producers like Hichozan or Zoshuntei.
I could not find any information about Yamasei, so perhaps others know more.
I include a picture of one of my vases signed Hichozan Shinpo Zo to compare.
