I'd like to identify the attached markings if possible on a satsuma vase and a tea set, meiji period.

The mark on the first picture is unreadable for me.
The mark on the 2nd picture is: Kinkozan 錦光山 Zo 造 (made by Kinkozan). The top part on the right of the first Kanji character / is made longer on the left side, but it is 錦.
Mark of Kinkozan Sobei. The main production of the Kinkozan studio was approximately between 1875-1927 under the leadership of Kinkozan 7th (1868-1927). At a certain time he had more than 200 man and woman working for him.
More about Kinkozan can be found on the internet.
