Vibrant, bold colors will make this large, early Noritake bowl a real standout on your shelf or table. Against the white porcelain and within a 'field' of lemon yellow the flowers are handpainted in a watercolor style and in warm shades of melon, tangerine, and tan. The foreground leaves are bright lemon-lime and grass-green and the background leaves are a lovely shade of lavender - giving the florals a wonderful sense of depth. The swath of brown at the base of the flowers suggests the soil from which the flowers bloom - very nice!
Measures 10" x 2 3/4" and is in very good condition with no chips, cracks or crazing; there is a tiny firing pop in the bowl. There is minor gold wear to the rim and handles - ca. 5-10%. Carries the Noritake M-in-wreath mark, but with "Made in Japan", so dates to after 1921 when 'Japan' was used on exports rather than the earlier practice of denoting the country by 'Nippon'.
Thanks very much for stopping by my shop!
