Japanese markings on vintage metal vase? Please help!

pabs3807December 30, 2013

I recently found an engraved mix metal Japanese vase with inlaid silver and gold flowers at a thrift shop and I'm having a very difficult time identifying the maker and time period the piece was made. There is also a very small set of marking on the bottom but taking a good picture of it is almost impossible, I used a jewelers loop to magnify the camera on my phone but it was the best I could do. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Recent is subjective. I've some similar ones from the fifties, and that qualifies as vintage. Price quoted is probably pretty accurate.
