I am trying to identify the seal mark on a Chinese Yixing body vase. The characters are in what I believe to be seal format. I have tried using Google translate by hand writing but, the results I received do not appear to be remotely similar. Ideally I would love a translation of what it means however I would gratefully appreciate any help or guidance that can be offered please. Thank you in anticipation.
