Japanese export Imari/Arita ware, marked 'Fûki chôshun' (富貴長春). In fact this was an old Chinese auspicious mark reading 'Fu gui chang chun' - 'Wealth, honor and a long spring'.

I'm not sure about the date. These marks were already used by the Japanese on export ware in the 17th-18th century but copied again during the Meiji period.
