We are offering for auction a Noritake China Occupied Japan serving bowl. This bowl measures approximately 10.5âe across and 7.75âe wide. The outer rim has a fine gold band, then a half inch of green with outlined vines, then another gold band. T are four bouquets of multi-colored flora. I describe this because t are so many patterns that look alike with only a few slight variations in the patterns. The mark underneath reads, NORITAKE CHINA âeoeMâe MADE IN JAPAN .858. Mark: Letter "M as in "Morimura" surrounded by a wreath with ribbons, crowned by "Noritake China " in capitals was registered already in 1933. The use of the Noritake brand name in combination with Occupied Japan dates this plate quite firmly to the 1948-1952 periods. This mark should have been the one replacing the "Komaru" mark (#870, 871). T are no chips, cracks, or repairs of any kind. They look as if they have never been used only stored away.
