The Phoenix in Japan (known as HOWO) appears to be a combination of pheasant and peacock. It is a rare bird that only makes its appearance on earth when spectacular events or a new age of peace and splendor is about to begin. The phoenix is normally shown with its wings spread out as it attacks a serpent with its claws. Borders on the porcelain vary but often contain stylized mountains and clouds known as the Noritake pattern.

This lovely Japan oval serving platter, circa 1920's, is covered with images of the Phoenix or Flying Turkey, floral blossoms, scrolls of foliage and geometric designs in hues of shaded blue transfer on a white porcelain blank. The platter measures 9 7/8" in length and 7 1/4" in width. It is stamped in blue with a "M" within a wreath and "Made In Japan". There are no cracks, chips or repairs.
