The marks on the fine piece of china are the "M" for Morimura in a wreath, crowned by "NORITAKE" and below, "Hand painted" and "Made in Japan". This mark was registered in 1918 and seems to have come in to use in the early 1920's when it was used until around 1940. This is the less common square shaped bowl. It has raised gold paint that is beaded and hand painted roses around the lip of the bowl. There is an extension of the lip of the bowl that functions as a handle. The piece has no chips or cracks and measures 8 X 8 inches and is 1½ inches deep.
