The mark reads down and across from the right in two stacks as "Made by Zoshuntei Sampo" (Zoshuntei Sampo Zo). This was a well known studio that painted Arita (formerly "Hizen") ceramics circa the late 19th century. I tend to believe your dish may be a stand for larger vase, planter or censer, among other possibilities. Its decoration is rather tame compared the usual items I've seen from the Meiji period with this mark. Here's a piece bearing the signature in its usual red color. It has a bronze collar and is missing its cover. The elevated feet suggest it may have been a censer.
Also please see the link for the auction result of a large floor vase by this studio.
