Lovely little decorative side plate with a beautiful hand painted design of peanuts. What a sweet nut motif! It is marked with the laurel leaf with M for Morimura Brothers (early Noritake) and hand painted Nippon which dates it from 1911 and pre-1921.
The Morimura Brothers started as a trading company out of New York and Japan. They sold Japanese antique and imports to America. By 1899 a third of their business was ceramics, and all the potteries were consolidated in the area of Nagoya, Japan. In 1904 the two brothers established a factory of their own in Noritake, just outside of Nagoya. The name 'Noritake' on antique and vintage ceramics is actually referring to the town and factory, and was not, in fact, the company name until 1981.
CONDITION: Excellent with no chips, nicks, or cracks.
SIZE: This plate measures 6 1/4 inches across.
Please examine the photos carefully as I try to include all pertinent details.
