Hello Martin, here's a link to a pdf document with the catalog of a 2014 sale by the UK Bonham's Auction House of another vase signed by Fuso Seiko and having a red seal of Tokodo. The vase is pictured, and you only need to use your browser's "find" feature to activate the search window of the pdf to locate the listing. The seal isn't shown but the characters for Fuso Seiko's name are, so no reason to believe the seal isn't identical too.
