Customer Question

Hi
I have 3 pieces of Noritake which were passed down from Grandparents.
I have searched various sites online but cannot find the same pattern?
They have the pale blue Komaru symbol on the base.(pre WW1)? The pattern on them has swastikas and some very delicate painted flowers and beading?
I've no idea!!! Name,possible price?

Hi,

This is pre-WW I, circa 1908-1914 and the backstamp an extremely early one, it's also the first to use the brand name "Noritake". There is no information available on patterns for this time period. Similar vase in quality, size, and condition are selling for $80-100 each at auction.

Thank you,

Wayne

Hi,

You can try selling them on etsy, or eBay. This way you could reach an international market. Please take time to rate my service*****. If you have any additional questions please consider me first.
