No cracks, chips, crazing, nor flea bites; No hazing nor stains.The form of this Creamer is octagonal - achieved by a mold having eight vertical panels to create this creamer form. The unglazed base seat rim is octagonal in shape - forming a subtle pedestal base; the form rounds out and upwards, tapering further outwards slightly until it approaches the upper rim, where it flares outwards ... the front panels rise further, forming an ample rounded pour-spout. The wide-flat handle is scupltured and angular in shape - ample in size.The recessed base bears the maker’s mark – a glaze or ink stamp - in ox-blood re ink - "NORITAKE; MADE IN JAPAN; in the center - LOGO "Noritake M Wreath"" - the mark used in 1918.The base colour of this Creamer is white - inside and out.

One of the brothers, Toyo, established a business in the NY, USA selling Japanese antiques and alike by 1878 re-named Morimura Brothers in 1881.In 1876, Morimura Brothers, began the Noritake trademark – and by the 1890’s this company became more of a trading company than a retail operation.Ichizaemon Morimura VI and his brother, Toyo, imported chinaware from Japan – items such as curiosities, china tableware, gift items … eventually looking to improve the quality of their source of wares. A factory, Nippon Toki Kaisha Ltd, connected with Morimura Brothers, was built in Noritake (1904) – near Nagano, Japan – which manufactured western-style tableware for export. By the 1920’s assembly lines were established for their high-quality porcelain production items. Ceramic - Ceramic is a general term used to describe the art of making things from clay then baking them to become strong & non-absorbent. China is a highest-quality ceramic.China is composed of clay, kaolin, feldspar, and quartz – other materials, depending on circumstances may be added as well. These materials are mixed, items are molded into shape, and then go through a series (where glazes can be added) of long & high temperature firings – which impact the final product. In the end, the components have fused, forming a strong and non-absorbent product.China is also referred to a tender porcelain, also more opaque than porcelain.Porcelain is a ceramic made by heating the materials which make porcelain (kaolin and several others) to 1200-1400-degree C – producing very strong and transluscent porcelain-ceramic – due to the high-heating process generating the mineral mullite.Japan - The Japanese name for "Japan" is "Nippon".Made in JAPAN Ceramics - an interesting history .... compiled from a few sites ...1891-1921 - Hand-Painted NIPPON - several versions ...A glaze or ink stamp - in red ink "HAND PAINTED"; green ink ""Detailed Crown"; NIPPON" - Said to be made for Meito China in the Nagoya area of Japan. Also sold under the name Nagoya Sheito Sho Co.After 1915 - MADE IN NIPPON1921-1941 - NORITAKE Art-Deco - these items are MOST PRIZED by collectors, price reflects that as well.1921-1941 JAPAN; MADE IN JAPAN - referred to as the GOLDEN AGE - Early - U.S Customs required that all country names be labeled in English - these pieces were marked "JAPAN" or "MADE IN JAPAN" (as the words "MADE IN" were also req'd but some managed to make it through without. Sometimes due to space constraints, only the word JAPAN appeared).An embargo stopped all shipments from JAPAN 1941-1945.1947-1952 OCCUPIED JAPAN; MADE IN OCCUPIED JAPAN - Feb 1947-Apr 1952 - items began to reach the U.S in 1947 were marked as such in INK, post 1949 - the ink was most commonly RED, GREEN or BLACK. 1952+ JAPAN; MADE IN JAPAN - ... improved stickers were allowed to replace INK, in the 1950's. Gilding -Gilding is a technique used to apply a very thin coat of gold to another surface such as – wood, porcelain or stone. Any item which is gilded is described to be gilt.Metal which was gilded – in the West – where silver was used – these objects were called silver-gilt items.Parcel-gilt or partial gilt – refers to when an item is only partly gilded.Gilded items could be made by applying gold leaf by hand and glued, also by chemical methods or electroplating (gold plating). Pure gold powder or ground gold leaf can be made into a suspension then painted onto ceramics and fired to set … it can also be combined with other materials in the hopes of more effectively chemically attaching the gold to the ceramic’s surface through high-heat firing.SHIPPING - Able to ship from Canada (default) OR US (please contact with request OR for pricing.
