Your vase was made somewhere between 1900 and 1940. It is bottom of the barrel stuff. You'll find out when you put it up for sale.

Your only saying that to get a good price on ebay.

I have neither desire nor intention to buy Satsuma ware of any description.

More about Meiji period ceramics:
Seen in the West as distinctively Japanese, this style actually owed a lot to imported pigments and Western influences, and had been created with export in mind. Workshops in many cities raced to produce this style to satisfy demand from Europe and America, often producing quickly and cheaply. So the term "Satsuma ware" came to be associated not with a place of origin but with lower-quality ware created purely for export.
