Vintage YY Japan Yonemoto Store Porcelain Serving Bowl, Japanese Ume Plum Blossom

This unusual serving bowl features black and teal branches of hand painted gold, pink and red plum blossoms on a white background. YY Japanese porcelain was made in Japan for Hawaii's Yonemoto Store, then often shipped to Hong Kong for hand decoration of details. This piece is more recent than other pieces in this collection, c 1960; we know because of its Western-style shape and size.

The bowl is in excellent vintage condition, with small areas of wear consistent with age in floral details and worn gold edging on the rim. The bottom edges, though scrubbed thoroughly, show signs of wear and use, plus a small chip as shown in photos 4 and 5.

8.25"/20.955 cm long
6.125"/15.5575 cm wide
1.875"/4.7625 cm deep

We pack with care in recycled materials and ship USPS Priority insured. If the final shipping costs are lower than expected, you will receive a prompt refund for that amount. Items to other countries will be shipped International First Class Insured.
