The beautiful condition of this set belies its age. The only sign of usage is some very light wear to the gold trim on outside edge of the master bowl. No chips, cracks or utensil marks. The cheerful hand painted design of orange and blue posies is bright and lustrous and stands out on the snow white porcelain.
The oval celery bowl measures 12 1/4" long by 5 1/2" wide and the darling little salts measure 2 1/2" by 1 3/4".
Blue 'Rising Sun' mark on large bowl, "Hand Painted, Nippon" on unglazed bottoms of salts. c.1900
