- Pattern: Moss Rose (Discontinued)
- Made in Japan
- Vintage: circa 1960’s
- Details: This pretty sugar bowl is in the very popular, much imitated, “Moss Rose” pattern. It seems just about every porcelain manufacturer came out with a Moss Ross-like pattern. This one is of very fine porcelain and features a pink rose alongside closed and semi-opened buds. There are green stems and leaves and also some very thin red stems with light blue leaves. The reason the pattern is called Moss Rose is the hairy or wispy edge these roses had, growers thought they resembled moss. The piece has lovely intricate handles and a scalloped rim, as well as a scalloped foot/base. The actual sugar bowl is not smooth, it’s embossed for a very nice effect. The lid is quite plain in comparison, with only one gold ring around the finial. If you’re looking to complete your set of Moss Rose, please be very careful, this pattern was made by many manufacturers through the years like: Bavarian, Sango, Fine China of Japan, Pompadour, Royal Sealy and others. They all look similar but there are variations. If that is not important to your collection efforts then you will find lots of available pieces, sizes and shapes in Moss Rose.

The Moss Rose pattern was named for an heirloom variety of rose, which became popular in the Victorian era. Moss Rose was first introduced as a dinnerware/china pattern in the early 1800’s. Believed to have originated in England the pattern became very popular, and because of its popularity, the pattern has been produced/copied by several companies. Some of the most productive manufacturers were in England, France and Japan. The popularity of this pattern declined in the early 1900’s but became popular again in post-war Japan as a popular American import up to the 1960’s.
