This lovely chocolate pot and serving set is marked with the magenta Nippon "M" wreath stamp which was registered in the USA and Japan in 1911. The M stands for Morimura which was the name of the founder of the Noritake factory in Japan. Research indicates that the magenta stamp was used on more utilitarian pieces. The saucers are unmarked. All other pieces are marked.

The pieces are hand painted with gold detailing including tiny gold beads of paint around the rims and interior bands. The porcelain, particularly on the cups and saucers, is thin and translucent. The pattern has not been identified but resembles that used for Noritake's Valencia patterns. The flowers are pale green with a pale peach background. There is some black around the rims with gold striping.

The set includes a chocolate pot, serving tray, and 6 sets of tiny cups and saucers. There is only one teeny chip on the base of one cup and a bit of extra dark paint on the side of a second (see photo). The tray measures 12" in diameter. The cups are 2" tall and 1.75" wide. Saucers are about 4" in diameter. The pot measures 6.5" to the top of the finial and 4" diameter at the base.
