This is an Imari or Hasami-ware vase used by hidden Christians around the mid to late Edo period.
It is underglaze blue with a depiction of a Nanban ship and a cross.
The brown parts of the ship's blue kana are decorated with copper.
Confirmation with a loupe reveals that it is not a new copper coloring, but a copper painting seen on Imari ware from the Edo period.
The bubbles in the transparent glaze can also be confirmed to be old.
The texture and cobalt pigment also indicate that this is not a modern piece, but an Edo period piece, so it is not a modern copy or forgery.
Authentic relics of hidden Christians are rare and almost never found on the market.
