Wakayama Made (若山作)

This mark seems to pop up quite a bit on porcelain vases and plates. No one on the English sites seem to know what the mark is. It is in seal script on the porcelain pieces.  The seal script reads Wakayama, but another reading can be Jyakuzan. I have seen it labeled Arita and Mino ware. Although I have searched and search in Japanese I cannot find a consensus there either. This should not be confused with Wakayama of "Funjina Wakayama" ware, nor of the Wakayama of "Izumo Wakayama" ware.
