Pictures are blurry. Neither the less your Charger is Japanese and from the Meiji period.

This mark reads "Dai Ming Sei Ka Nen Sei" (太明成化年製), "Made during the Seika Reign of the Great Ming Dynasty". It is a Japanese forgery of reign marks from the Chenghua rule in China (1465-87) that dates to the Pre-1868 Edo period but also was continued afterward. Some of these marks are seen with the "大" (Great - Da in China) character, also pronounced "Dai" in Japan.

Your photos are too fuzzy for a guess at whether the charger is an older or newer piece.

Best regards,
