Mat is right about the mark, these marks were also used to line the lid up with the decoration or marked right or left, the mark you found inside I do not think it is a mark but enamel that splashed in side, I have never seen a vase marked inside, Plates and saucers and chargers I have seen mark on the front but never a vase.


These characters occasionally appear on Japanese porcelain, as you know. I do not know if it is, but ?? (actual characters for "nine" and "right") are often part of a male name, like ???? (Kyuemon). 


I know I should be understanding, but I'm not, is it Japanese, is it old and is it worth holding on to even tho it has no lid and I think the wings have been broke at some point?  I really do appreciate you all giving opinions but I'm confused.
