You are bidding on one of the finest Noritake ever produced. It is the most popular AZALEA pattern. It was originally created in 1915 by the Noritake Co. At Replacements the year 2000, Azalea was the 25th most requested discontinued china of all time! In the early 20th century, Azalea was widely marketed by the Larkin Co, a catalog marketer of mail order soap and endless other products. Azalea appeared in the Larkin catalogs from the 1910's until 1940 and World War II.
Re-designs of the Azalea shapes were made over the years, giving options today for various shapes in the same piece type. These were not new lines, but an evolution of the original Azalea to match changing tastes in design.
Presented in this listing is the 28 oz. milk pitcher, which was produced from 1928-1934. It is 5 3/4" in height. The number on the back is 19322. It has a smooth edge with a gold trim. It is hand painted and embossed with white paint on the flower stamens. It is embellished with gold on the top and handle. This pitcher has very minor gold wear.....still very much like brand new!! It has no chips, cracks, crazing, or any other damage. They are all in excellent condition. Once again, I stress that this Azalea milk pitcher has the Original RED back-stamp.
