This item is a covered sugar and creamer set made by Noritake with the "M" in a wreath mark with Nippon under it, and Hand Painted above it. The sugar bowl is 5 1/2" handle to handle by 3 1/2" tall with the lid on it. The creamer is 4 1/4" spout to handle and stands 2 1/2" tall. The decoration is simple black over clear white, and is absolutely gorgeous. The main decoration on both pieces is a swan swimming on a calm lake, with lovely trees and shrubs in the foreground and rolling hills and trees across the lake. The trees extend onto the cover of the sugar bowl. The handles and upper rims of both pieces are highlighted with black bands. The back of each piece has a tree and shrubs with a shoreline on it. There is a small glaze imperfection on the inside of one of the handles of the sugar bowl that has stained slightly with time. There are no chips, cracks, or wear on this great set.
