DESCRIPTION: In excellent condition, this Nippon Berry Bowl mixes well with most dinnerware sets or as a stand-alone home decorating piece. It glistens under a fine glaze coating and heavy gilding. The design is of a wide band of gold roses encircling the bowl’s interior with lovely details and artistry of the era. You’ll notice each rose and leaf to be outlined in gold and bordered with the intricacy of moriage beading. In center, a trio of roses highlights the theme and completes the design. This bowl has pierced handles, is rimmed in gold with a fine gold trim on exterior base. A beautiful piece!
WHY I LIKE IT: Glimmering gold on pristine white porcelain is timeless.
BACKSTAMP(s): Hand Painted Nippon (Morimura) in green overglaze.
CIRCA: 1910 - 1921
