    Sorry to be late in responding. Is that a vase with a warrior in armor fighting a dragon? The first part is the title of the work "Profound Bravery" followed by the artisan's name Hidemasa XX. He has made up his own Chinese character for his family name, so without other clues, not possible to read the full name. In these cases it might help to show the whole work, so one can check from the type of work it is.

    Nope, none of that rings a bell. Hidemasa probably was not such a famous artisan, as I would have found him if he was. Anyway, it appears to be a typical export piece from the late 1800s. The motif of warriors fighting a dragon appears rather made-to-order for Westerners, as a hostile relationship between man and dragon is rare in Japanese legend. In China the dragon symbolized the Emperor, but there was no such association in Japan.
