|Help identifying the Artist & Retailer of Japanese Bronze Okimono|

Greetings again fellow forum members.
I have bought myself another Bronze Okimono I need help with identification of the Artist & Retailer/Maker if possible.
This time it's not as large as my two tigers (Atsuyoshi & Kakuha) however no less beautiful.. it's a sweet little hard working rat on a bunch on rice stalks.
It has both a Signature & a Seal Mark so I'm assuming they will be similar to the Atsuyoshi bronze and one will be the Artist (Atsuyoshi) while the other will be the retailer/representative (Maruki Company). Please correct me if I'm wrong.
With my eternal gratitude in advance for any and all help out learned forum members may provide.
Included is a picture of each mark & the whole piece.
