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 oval, footed, handled, colorful serving bowl, circa 1930's, has a interior completely decorated with two large floral blossoms and unopened bud in gorgeous multi-colored shades of orange, white, blue/gray and white nestled among shaded green and brown foliage. The pastel yellow to blue/gray background extended to the sculptured, oval top with black trim and arched handles. The wide, exterior, butterscotch border is outlined in black separating it from the white porcelain body and four black feet. The bowl measures 7" across, 11" from handle-to-handle and 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
