We do no usually list damaged pieces, but this is a rare piece, worth preserving even if damaged.
This porcelain china pitcher is marked "Hand Painted Nippon" with the RC mark for Royal Crockery, which later became Noritake China. This mark was used from 1908 - 1911. The pitcher is 5 1/2" high with a 5 3/4" hexagonal underplate. Bothe pieces are hand painted with encrusted moriage, gold flowers and leaves and jewel-like enamel beading. Aside from some wear to the gold paint on the handle, the decoration is in very good condition.
Now for the sad news; the lid is missing and there is a fractured lip of the spout. This piece has been in the owner's family for 100 years, and it is not known when this accident happened. If perfect, we'd be asking over $300 for this piece. As it is, the owner, now downsizing, is happy to find it a new home where it will be appreciated as an example of early 20th Japanese century porcelain china.
