A beaker or sake cup imo. It doesnít match any of the foreign looking marks in the Marks book, but the cup itself doesnít look Asian.

It could be Japanese but there is nothing about it that suggests that it is. What I mean is that it is not in any distinctive Japanese style and the darkening of the light stoneware is something that I have not seen in Japanese pottery before. Also the bottom of the drinking vessel doesn't look right to be Japanese (it's too uninteresting).
