Noritake introduced the Richmond pattern in 1960. It features a sleek, modern mid 20th century design, with a semi-glossy finish, classic shape and elegant gold border and trim. Use this versatile vintage piece to serve mashed potatoes, vegetables or another side dish. The other Richmond pieces shown in the last photo are listed separately. Feel free to make an offer on the lot.
