  • Pattern:  Unknown (Discontinued)
  • Made in Japan by Noritake (Morimura Company of Japan)
  • Vintage: 1920’s – 1930’s
  •  Details:  This is such a delightful serving dish, once you start using it, you’ll wonder how you did without it.  Used in the olden days to serve lemon wedges, would look lovely on a table today when serving tea, iced tea, lemonade, fish dishes, 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 little loop for carrying, called a finger loop, the little leaf detail at the end of the loop is very pretty. We have two dishes (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 pictures, we cannot guarantee which one you will receive.  Both have the red backstamp from Morimura (M), 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 piece and useful at the same time, a conversation starter.
  • Material:  Porcelain
  • Dimensions:  5.5 inches in Diameter
  • Condition: Vintage – Used.

Dating Noritake and Morimura Brothers pieces can be overwhelming.  Here we’ve gathered for you some of the nuggets of knowledge we’ve 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 were 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 was most likely applied for during this time period.
