The mark reads: Dai 大 Nippon 日本 - Nikko 日光 Sei 製 (Great Japan - Made by Nikko).

The Nikko brand was founded by Kato Kosaburo. In 1882, he started a retail shop in Yokohama making Satsuma ware, made for foreign visitors and the export market. Nikko produced Satsuma wares as well as porcelains.

Your set is Kutani-like porcelain ware from around 1900.
