Hand painted floral Nippon Condiment set with tray
|| for item safn-2052
A lovely hand painted condiment set and tray. Made of hand painted porcelain enhanced floral blossoms and gold trims on edges and handles. The set includes a mustard jar with spoon, salt and pepper shakers, plus the tray.
Mark from 1911 in green, Hand Painted over the M in a wreath, Nippon. The M in the Noritake mark (on older pieces) does in fact refer to the Morimura brothers, who were the U.S. agents for (what later was known as) Noritake.
The shakers are 2 & 1/2 inches tall. The mustard jar is 2 1/2 inches tall. The tray has a diameter of 6". Wonderful condition with no cracks, chips or repairs, very minor wear of the gold in places, the most wear showing on one of the shaker tops. The cork plugs are both intact, but one being inside one of the shakers. A Beautiful set.
