The Noritake Company was first registered in 1904 as Nippon Gomei Kaisha. In 1917 the name became Nippon Toki Kabushiki Toki. The "M in Wreath" mark is that of the Morimura Brothers, distributors with offices in New York. It was registered in 1918 and used from the early 1920's through 1941.
This lovely and colorful serving bowl, circa 1930's, has a center completely decorated with a tranquil country scene depicting a small cottage nestled among a grove or trees on the banks of a quiet lake with colorful hills in the background. The pallet of earth tones with soft blues and pinks is beautiful. The scene is outlined with a decorative black design with wide butterscotch border extending to the narrow black rim. The lovely arched handles and round raised base is also etched with black. The bowl measures 7 3/4" across, 9 1/2" from handle-to-handle and 2 3/4" in height. It is marked in green "Noritake - M - Hand Painted - Made in Japan". There are no cracks, chips or repairs. Outstanding design and color pallet.
