Is there a register of common Japanese rebus monograms out there? There's one particular monogram that i come across often but fail to figure out the meaning behind it. It is a 上 under a (人屋根 radical)
My best guess is it is somehow related to soy sauce manufacturer Yamasa, since their monogram also comprises 上 and , but in a different configuration and with extra サ.
Here is a representation drawn by me.

I always see that one used by the company 上組

Other than them, i would read it as 山上
