Antique Handed Painted Nippon Plate - Lovely Painted Walnut Vintage Plate - Nut Motif - Morimura Bros


Antique Handed Painted Nippon Plate - Lovely Painted Walnut Vintage Plate - Nut Motif

This is an exceptional plate with a beautiful hand painted design of a walnut. It is marked with the laurel leaf with M for Morimura Brothers (old 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.

It measure 6 1/4 inches across. Please examine the photos carefully as I try to include all pertinent details.
