The Takito Japan Company, 1880-1948, was mostly known as one of those specializing in the lustre ware types of decorating originally developed by the Noritake Company. Pieces of the moriage a la Kyoto satsuma on porcelain are also found.

This beautiful Takito Moriage China - Japan 23 piece set, circa 1922-1944, is profusely decorated with cherry blossoms, the national flower of Japan, birds, pagodas, mountains and clouds. The birds and tree branches are 'blown-out' on the tea pot, sugar and creamer. The heavy moriage decoration consists of a pallet of colors, brown, orange, yellow, white, medium and cobalt blue with gold gilt highlights on the birds and some complete blossoms and finials. The background is a pastel mint green with soft orange borders and brown handles and trim.

The set consists of a tea pot w/lid, 6 3/4" in height and 9" from spout-to-handle; covered sugar, 5" in height and 6 1/2" from handle-to-handle; creamer, 3 3/4" in height and 4 1/2" from spout-to-handle; 6 dessert plates, 7 1/8" across; 6 cups and saucer sets, saucers, 5 1/4" across; cups, 2 1/4" in height and 3 1/2" across the top. The egg-shell cups have a pearl lustre interior. Marked in red "T T" in connected rectangles and "Hand Paint - Made In Japan". There are no cracks, chips or repairs; some moriage loss on the one handle of the sugar bowl and a few minor nicks on several other pieces. One of the most unusual and beautiful sets I have seen. Great for your next tea party or decor.
