These pretty little set of six china dishes carry the blue Nippon Maruki mark which dates them to circa 1906. These may have been used for a variety of purposes. Most likely they were open salts, but their 3 and 1/2 inch diameter make them slightly large for that purpose. They may have been used for tea bags or even nuts. They have a rim which extends about 1/2 inch and they have a small pedestal which is about 1/8 of an inch. They feature a green shamrock symbol which has been carefully outlined in a raised gold outline. The edges and the pierced handles are gilded which add a classic balance. They have an easily identifiable mark in blue on their bottom. All six are in excellent condition with only a slight amount of the gilding worn.
