Can anyone help me identify this teapot?

My sister generously gifted me ths antique teapot, and I adore it! I am trying to find out more about it in hopes of acquiring the set. Here are some pictures of the pot and of its markings and what I think I know about it.

Potentially a Black Kyoto Satsuma teapot, with Gyokuzan markings, from the Meiji period (1890’s-1920’s). I have not tried to clean the scuffs off the outside for fear of disturbing the paint. It’s so beautiful!!! Best sister ever.

I very sincerely appreciate any and all tips about its origin!
