大日本千種小牧陶會社造 - Dai-Nihon Chigusa Komaki-Tōgaisha-zō - Empire of Japan, Chigusa, Komaki Ceramics Company Made

Chigusa and Komaki are place names in the vicinity of Nagoya with pottery and ceramic traditions, not far from Seto.

As of the above company, I couldn't find any trace of it on the net. Probably, an export oriented maker under the Meiji and Taisho era.

With regards,

Dear I.Nagy,

In my Japanese markings database I have another mark like this with a complete Kanji in the upper left corner. That mark reads: Dai-Nihon Chikusa Seito 製陶 Kaisha Zo.
See my picture.
The marks are probably early marks of the Nagoya Seito Kaisha (Nagoya Pottery Company), founded in 1908 by Kotero Asukai, former employee of Noritake.
With all respect,
