The Kanji in the circle is "ko" 光.
Circle is in Japanese: Maru 丸.
So the mark is spelling: Maruko.
I think it was made in the 1920's / 1930's.
Sometimes marks of the Nikko 日光 company were also shortened with only "Ko" 光 in a circle, but I don't think this is a Nikko mark, because the (Nik)ko Kanji is written differently (cursive) in gold and the background of (Nik)ko in the circle is black or brown.
