Would this be a sake cup rather than a teabowl as it's only about 2.5" across. As far as I am aware it's Japanese and probably contemporary. The bowl/cup has 3 dimples, are these decorative or are they for practical reasons? There is an incised mark but with extremely limited knowledge of Japanese ceramics I'm stumped.

Yes, Japanese sake cup or guinomi. Ash glaze. Almost certainly contemporary. Dimples for ease of holding it. I’m afraid I don’t know the mark
Just my personal opinion, take it or leave it.

Incised marks such as that are almost impossible to ID, unless you come across something similar with a signed box.
Now you should know by now that Potty and I need to see your bottom - we're funny that way!
