These are on a tea pot I have. I have always wondered what they mean.

The second pic is good luck or good fortune. More info in the second entry on this page:

The other image would take a lot of effort to translated, etc. I can't do that for free since it's at least an hour of work and research.

Cheers,

Thank you for the information. I like that the tea pot has a good luck message. The other one was difficult to photograph so I did that rubbing. My guess is it is the name of a company because it looks like it was stamped on. Thanks again. I think this is a great site.
