These delicate porcelain Noritake Nippon pedestal salt dips are hexagon shaped, with a pale lavender lustre finish inside the bowl. The scalloped outer edge is carefully hand painted with a 1/8 inch band of gold, outlined with black, and a forget-me-not motif below. Alternating panels have either the bouquet or a bit of greenery on a pale blue background.
Each of these diminutive pedestal salt cellars measures 1-13/16 inches across the top and stands on a 1-1/4 inch foot. Each is 1-1/2 inches tall.
The backstamp is well worn, but there is enough to determine it is the blue Noritake Nippon mark circa 1911. This mark was used on blanks for export to the USA for hand painting in one of the many decorating studios of the time.
There is an easy-to-miss shallow 3/16 inch inner edge chip on one, and a few narrow glaze slips along the inner edge of each. The design is clear on all three and the gold shows very little wear.
