  • Pattern:  Antique Morimura Lemon Server, Gold Moriage (Discontinued)
  • Made in Japan 
  • Vintage: 1920's - 1930's
  •  Details:  This is such a delightful lemon serving dish, once you start using it, you'll wonder how you did without it.  Used in the olden days to serve lemon wedges, it would look lovely on a table today when serving tea, iced tea, lemonade, fish, or anything else that calls for a wedge of lemon.  The pattern is gorgeous, a beautiful flower adorned with gold leaves and two blue buds all bordered in gold moriage.  There is a different, smaller pattern on the sides also hand painted in gold.  It has a small finger loop, the little leaf detail at the end of the loop is very pretty. We have two dishes (EACH SOLD SEPARATELY), there is slight variation in the finger loop detail on each, one smooth with lots of gold, the other more detailed but less gold, see last two pictures.  See pictures, we cannot guarantee which one you will receive.  Both have the red backstamp from Morimura (Morimura Company of Japan, later became Noritake).  With the added "US Patent Applied For", we were able to date these between the 1920's to the late 1930's.  Truly a unique and beautiful dish and useful at the same time.
  • Material:  Porcelain
  • Dimensions:  5.5 inches in Diameter

Dating Noritake and Morimura Brothers pieces can be overwhelming.  We've gathered some nuggets of knowledge collected through the years to help you understand the dating, value, and how we come up with the dates on our pieces.  We know that Noritake and Nippon are both brands that were produced and sold by the Morimura Company of Japan.   This piece has the letter "M" in a wreath mark (for Morimura) which was used between 1914 and 1940.  From the early 1920's to 1940, all their patterns intended for the US market were designed in New York, the "Patent" mentioned on the backstamp was most likely applied for during this time period.
