This vintage dainty porcelain bowl has a hand painted scene of a house with a red roof on a lake in winter time. The coloring is that of minty greens, blues and touches of gray, with white snow and clouds are absolutely stunning! The coloring and scene combined with the high luster makes this a very interesting piece. There is a silver trim around the edges of the unique shaped bowl. The handles are pierced/cut out of the porcelain.
The Noritake brown marking is the "M" for Morimura in a wreath, crowned by "NORITAKE" above the "M" and below "Hand painted" and 3/4"Japan". This mark was registered in 1918 and came in to used in the early 1920's and it was used until 1940. Backstamps after 1921 state "Japan" or "Made in Japan."
One of the most important contributions of Noritake china to the world of porcelain was the development of this particular glazing technique involved the use of a bright, single-color glaze covered by a thin metallic film. The result was a iridescence that gave these pieces of Noritake china a rainbow-like sheen.
This bowl measures 63/4"L x 53/4"W x 1.53/4"H. There are no chips or nicks on this piece. The finish is like new with the exception of a tiny bit of wearing on the corners of the silver trim. An exceptional item to add to your collection. This gorgeous item will definitely draw attention!
