Bonsai Pot with Japanese scene of man on horseback. Help with chop mark / hanko.

Hi Everyone! I am a bonsai novice with a question about my pot. I picked up this unused lovely pot with ornate design at thrift shop.  It appears to be hand painted with a wrapped scene of a man riding horseback.  I'd appreciate help identifying the chop mark.  Feedback welcome too.    Thanks!

After much research, I think this tiny pot might be a YIXING pot. It is unglazed with black engobe painting. I still don't know the artist because I can't seem to match the chop mark. Feedback welcome.

Hard to read your chop upside down, but it looks to me to read as 藤丸 Fujimaru. Maybe someone with more knowledge about potters can provide more in depth information.

That is one Japanese reading...if you say it is a Chinese Pot I do not know the Chinese reading of the characters...

This is a Japanese-made production pot from Marufuji, sometimes also called Maruto.

I did not switch the first character in my head when I turned it around...丸藤 makes sense now...
