I've had these Satsuma jars kicking around for years. The decoration is certainly busy but interesting. Very clearly mass-produced for export, I'm guessing they date from from the 1970s, but certainly no earlier than the 1950s. The stamp is slightly different on the larger jar but I think they probably came from the same factory.
I have a vase with the same pattern as the larger jar but I haven't yet come across it - it'll be in one of the boxes in the loft still awaiting my attention.
10-20 years ago this type of ware was at every flea market, boot sale, antiques fair and auction, but I rarely see it these days. I think that the three pieces cost me about £2.00 the lot in the 1990s, and I doubt that they've increased in value, but they're pretty enough and the pair of jars currently live in the bathroom, one for my wife's cotton wool balls, the other for bath salts, while the larger jar is in the kitchen for rice.

But nicely decorated, and decorative items. Known as "royal satsuma ware" late 20th C.

Later than the '70's, do you think?

That doesn't surprise me at all, it's pretty much one of the traditional 'bread and butter' products that companies churn out with very few, if any changes for as long as it still has a market.
It is odd, though, that I really don't see it around the sales and markets nearly as much as I used to, although I suppose most of it now goes onto ebay, complete with much dubious dating and every other piece described as rare or unique Shrugs
