Antique Nippon Mayonnaise Bowl, Plate and Ladle - Little Blue Roses & Gold Gilt Floral Design - Hand Painted Condiment Dish

$23.00

This hand painted Nippon mayonnaise bowl is complete with under plate and ladle - unusual to find the ladle unbroken!

This is really a lovely piece, and I have found the three footed mayo bowl and plate of this shape listed in 1916 catalog, so this little gem could be 100 years old (and a genuine antique!). The painting here is very good, and the little blue flowers and gold gilt patterning is very good. This would make a fine addition to your Nippon collection. It is very light, and the ceramic is delicate and white with nice translucency.

China marked 'Nippon' were made between 1891 and 1921, and were made in Japan, often by what would become the Noritake company, and exported by the Morimura Brothers. It is clearly marked with "Hand Painted Nippon" on the underside of the condiment dish. There are no chips, nicks, and only very light scratching of the surface on the underside of the bowl, and on the plate. There is some wear on the gold gilt on the handle of the ladle. All in all in exceptional condition for age.


Bowl is 2 inches high approx, and 4 1/2 inches wide. Plate is 5 1/4 inches wide.
