Nippon Porcelain Gravy Boat - Antique China Gravy Boat by Noritake - Bird of Paradise Pattern or Mystery #40

Noritake produced this pattern ca. 1891, and it has been discontinued. The pattern itself is sometimes called Mystery # 40 by Noritake. It features peacocks or the bird of paradise in blues and yellows with scattered pink and white flowers and green leaves.

Some collectors casually call this pattern Peacock, which adds to the confusion. It is a white china with a delicately executed design. It is marked with the well known older Nippon Maple Leaf backstamp from the late 1800's. Please see the mark in the last picture.

SIZE: The gravy boat measures 9" long by 5-3/4" by 3-1/2" tall

CONDITION: It is in great antique condition with no chips, no cracks and no repairs.
