  • Pattern: Sweet Violet EW6 / 683B
  • Made in Japan
  • Vintage:  1960's
  • Details:  This is such a sweet pattern!  These snack sets were very popular in the 40's, 50's and into the 60's.  This one is from Norcrest, in their "Sweet Violet" pattern.  The cup has violets on both sides as well as the inside.  The plate is shaped like a shell with a very pretty scroll pattern in gold at the tip, and the same violet pattern as the cup, plus individual violets scattered around.  Both pieces have 22kt gold accents and rims.  They are both stamped on the back: "EW6/683B Sweet Violet".  HAND WASH is necessary to maintain condition and design.  Very pretty set for a Ladies Lunch, Tea Party or Bridal Shower.  We thought it would also make a great gift with a pretty box of teas.

Norcrest Fine China was founded in 1958 in Portland, Oregon by Bill Naito.  Bill's father, Hide Naito, had already established relationships in Japan from his own gift shop, which he opened in 1921, H. Naito Gifts, in downtown Portland that sold merchandise imported from Japan but the business was lost during WWII.  Hide and his son reestablished the business in the years following the war. They sold giftware to thousands of gift shops and larger retailers around the country.  Most items were made for Norcrest in Japan, shipped over to the US, and then Norcrest put their foil label on them. The business was incorporated in 1958 as the Norcrest China Company.  Through the years they expanded, opening other companies.  In 1963 they opened a company called Import Plaza, and in 1975 they opened Made in Oregon.  Hide died in 1996 and in 2004 the Norcrest China wholesale division closed.
