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 sugar & creamer set, 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 sugar measures 6" from handle-to-handle, 4 1/2" across and 3 3/4" in height; the creamer measures 5" from handle-to-spout, 3 3/4" across and 3 3/8" in height. Both are stamped in blue "Made In Japan". There are no cracks, chips or repairs.
