  • Made in Japan

  • Description:  This is a gorgeous black Japanese plate with pink cherry blossoms and green leaves, all bordered in gold.  It can be displayed two ways, with the cherry blossom branch hanging down or going up, we photographed it both ways, you choose, we like it both ways.  This  style of "Ceramique Noire" (Black Ceramic) became popular in the 1970's and 1980's and it's still collected today.  While it doesn't have the OMC sticker or Otagiri name, we have confirmed it is from OMC.  It is in wonderful condition, would make a great gift!

Otagiri Mercantile Company (OMC) was an importer and distributor based on San Francisco, CA from 1954-1994, they also had a location in New York.  Otagiri imported ceramics, porcelain, stoneware, and giftware from many Japanese companies. The products were made in Japan and were imported for sale to high end department stores and gift shops. However, by the mid 1970's to the mid 1980's Otagiri had some items specially produced just for them and those items have an incised mark (transfer mark) with "Otagiri".  Not all OMC wares are marked, some have the gold OMC label or Otagiri written in gold.  The company was bought by Enesco in 1994.
