I have officially exhausted all outlets to discover the maker mark and age on this. As Japanese is not a language I am at all familiar with I have been attempting to translate many sites and have had no luck. It has a gold chrysanthemum flower (which is the Japanese seal?) on it that I hope I am not wrong in assuming it is pure as well?
This vase is massive - 1500+ grams and I think contains the "Pure Silver" mark at the top and them the bottom would be the signature.
Any and all help would be very much appreciated!
It is similar to this Vase (Obviously the flower is different, I don't have an actual photo of the entire thing, waiting on my mom whom only sent the picture of the marks)
Here are the photos of the marks.
