This piece was made between 1914 –1940 and has the Red Stamp Noritake. The M stands for Morimura Brothers, a prominent New York distributor. Overall size is approximately 12" x 5 ¼" standing 1 ½". The hand painted flowers have a variety of colors of pink, purple, yellow and blue. The edge has a black border that has been worn throughout the years but no chipping of the porcelain nor cracks. Lovely piece to add to your collection.
