Subject:Satsuma vase mark
Posted By: Ian E Wed, Oct 13, 2021 IP:

Hi everyone, a contact sent me this mark from a vase and I'm having trouble even getting started on it. Apologies the images aren't the best.

I'm thinking it's late Meiji or Taisho from the style, any help transcribing the mark would be much appreciated.

Kono utsuwa wa ta ni hirui nashi
Yo ga tanen konku no sue
hajimete utsuwa ni egaku nari

This vessel is unmatched,
After many years of hardships I painted
this vessel for the first time.

I think the vase is a Yokohama painted export Satsuma.

With regards,
