Meiji period Kyoto Satsuma Moriage / .明治時代京都さつま

This is one of my earliest finds from when I first began collecting Asian porcelain, and after researching it for the past several days, I have finally identified it as a Meiji period Japanese porcelain, Kyoto Satsuma Moriage明治時代京都さつま. circa approx. 1868 - 1890  Unfortunately when I was researching this Japanese porcelain ware and asking around for help in identifying it, I had the Satsuma marking つまupside down, which prolonged the search for information and made if more difficult than necessary..

The term Kyoto Satsuma does not mean it was necessarily made in Kyoto and is a common name term used for the Satsuma marked "Satsuma style" wares that were made and decorated in Awata, Kyoto, & Yokohama, etc.  

Moriage is the common name for this style of decor with raised enamel painting.
