Description

Antique Creamer Pitcher Teapot Morimura Brothers Noritake Nippon Hand Painted Porcelain Tea or Coffee circa 1915 Japan Japanese

A rare beauty from a collector’s estate of Japanese Porcelain - Noritake and Nippon - can soon be your special treasure! A hand painted landscape scene, painstakingly applied to a miniature porcelain tea or coffee creamer produced by Morimura Brothers (later Noritake) under the Nippon name. The lovely piece is in wonderful condition for its age – which is somewhere between 96 and 101 years old – based on the makers stamp.

The soft hues used bring the beauty of this tranquil scene to life – perhaps it is the artist’s personal reminder of their home to share with you. The petite handle is ornately decorated with a delicate raised design in brown and green – best of all it is completely intact! It does not appear to have ever been used, but unfortunately it is missing the lid – however this in no way hinders the beauty of the piece! There are no other cracks, chips, crazing or repairs.

The piece measures approximately 3-1/8” tall x 3-7/8” wide (from the spout tip to the handle arch). The base width is just about of 3, with a 1-1/2” mouth opening.

Morimura Bros. (Noritake)

However very well known, 'Noritake' as well as 'Nippon' are brands and products produced or sold by the Morimura Company of Japan.

Most early pieces marked Nippon in Western or in Japanese Kanji characters seems to have been manufactured by or sold through the company that later would become Noritake Company.

From around the 1890's until 1921 the Nippon Toki Kaisha Ltd had according to the McKinley Tariff Act of 1890 marked their export porcelain with their country of origin as in "Nippon" but in western characters, which is kind of fun in an upstanding Edo period Samurai way. For "Nippon" collectors the bad news is that this mark only signifies the country of origin and implies no other information. So, even if early Morimura imports were likely to have been marked this way, so would other imports from Japan too. After the WWI most back stamps was changed to state "Japan" or "Made in Japan". Still the word Nippon was infrequently used even after 1921.

Mark: "M" standing for "Morimura" in a wreath, crowned by "Hand painted" and below, NIPPON. Date: Introduced in 1911 and possible in use until 1921. The first reported U.S. registry for a Noritake back stamp for importing is 1911. Noritake first produced dinnerware for the American market in 1914. It bears a typical back stamp of Noritake, the letter "M" in a wreath and the words "Hand painted."
