Rare Highly Collectible Antique Art Deco (1920s) Japanese Hand Painted Noritake Lustre Ware Eggshell Bone China Tea Set In Perfect Condition. Beautifully handcrafted gold gilded set as shown in 12 sets of photographs attached.Please browse all 12 sets of photographs for size, weight and condition as they are self explanatory. The set consists of five pieces. A teapot, a cup & saucer trio and a creamer. All pieces have the Noritake Maruki back stamp know as the Komaru Mark with the M for The Morimura brothers, who formed the Noritake company in Tokyo, within the wreath. I also have a matching sugar bowl in this pattern which unfortunately has a hairline crack (and not included in this advert) but its perfectly usable and the damage is only visible from the inside.
Noritake china production began around 1876 in Japan. They subsequently opened an export office in New York. In 1904 the Morimura Brothers formed Nippon Toki Kaisha Ltd and setup a production facility at Noritake near Nagoya on the Japanese island of Honshu.They registered their first Noritake back stamp around 1908 and registered their first Noritake mark in the USA around 1911.
