Hello,

Both photos are of the top of the box. I would like to see one of the mark on the bottom. Use the ADD FILES button to add another picture.

Here is the top

Oops! That is a third one of the top. I asked for the bottom where it is marked.

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Ok I think I have right this time
Expert:  rarewares replied 1 year ago.

Thank you. This is a generic importer mark meant to mimic the Morimura Nippon mark. It was used from 1950 through the 1970's. The design is a transfer of chintz florals over a lustre glaze. This box has a value of $15.00 to $20.00.
