It's yellow Satsuma-ware from Japan, c.1930s. They're not worth very much, I'm afraid.

Here's a similar piece.

Yellow Japanese Satsuma ware Empty Asian ceramics - Satsuma ware, Japan

Hi,
I very recently bought that vase on a flea market in France. The seller didn't know its story. He only told me it may come from China or Japan, maybe from late 19th / early 20th.
I tried to look for a similar kind of vase on Internet but didn't find much. It may look like Japanese Satsuma ceramics  Shrugs

It would be great if someone could tell me more about it :) Thanks in advance

Yes, it’s Japanese Satsuma ware. Likely to be early 20thC . You might find the mark on the Gotheborg.com website

Could not find any info on Gotheborg.com website

On other websites I could find that first part of the mark is 岩 = Iwa but can't find yet a Satsuma mark that matches

Still working on it

Quite often a number of families would be making the same pieces to a traditional design in a Prefecture so whoever made it isn’t really relevant and the mark might be for the communal kiln they used or a place name

I got infos from another forum.

I paste it here, since it may be interesting for someone else :

"Well it is (sort of) Satsuma ware, being earthenware and physically the same material etc - however the name "Satsuma" is reserved for the productions of the Satsuma Kiln and those pieces are usually marked with the clan badge or "mon" ..but you probably are aware of that, right?

Sometimes these "non-official" earthenware crackled glazed pieces are generically referred to as "Satsuma", and that is not TOO far off the mark, but more properly they should be called Japanese earthenwares - early non-Satsuma pieces (e.g. late Edo or early Meiji articles) are often designated as Kyoto earthenwares.

Pots like yours are late Meiji period (post 1900) and owe a certain amount of inspiration to the productions of Taizan Yohei IX, in my opinion the finest earthenware craftsman of late 19thc Japan.

Due to the extreme admiration for his works in the West, many other potters followed in his footsteps - whenever I see the butter yellow pieces I always see the Taizan influence. The quality of Taizan's decoration however is rarely, if ever, achieved by his followers. Many collectors prefer the "typical" Satsuma of the greats like Meizan, but in my book, I find the designs and coloration used by Taizan to be so original, precise and inventive that he surpasses all other makers of the period."

Certainly in the UK, many such pieces were imported, and so they are still fairly commonly found in antique centres and markets. As with most of the common imported Japanese pottery, the mark usually tells you nothing or very little.
