Subject:Need help on Bronze Vase Mark or Signature
Posted By: Roger Thu, Jan 30, 2020 IP: 2601:281:c202:b68a:9

I would greatly appreciate your thoughts on this bronze vase. It is very heavy for its size and has a mark or signature on its base. I assume this is Japanese but do not know for sure. I attempted to hand-draw the mark to better translate (probably a poor effort). Thanks for looking!
