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 two large floral blossoms and unopened bud in gorgeous multi-colored shades of yellow, blue and orange nestled among shaded green, brown and gray foliage. The pastel yellow background extended to a wide butterscotch border outlined in black. The cut-in handles flow gently into the wide border surrounding the top of the bowl. The bowl measures 9 1/4" across, 9 3/4" from handle-to-handle and 2 3/8" in height. It is marked in red "Noritake - M - Hand Painted - Made in Japan". There are no cracks, chips or repairs. Outstanding design and color pallet.
