Can you tell me exactly what the bottom reads?


Customer: replied 6 years ago.
the bottom trademark is:

two diamonds (overlaid with a capital T in each diamond ) surrounded by a circular design reading Handpaint Made in Japan...I've searched the trademark and it was the new trademark after 1926 (I think) of Nortiak china or Japan china...had something to do with the imports from foreign countries as regulated by US

This Vintage set is currently valued on the retail market ( cost replacement ) for an average of 750.00-800.00, depending on the condition and where it is for sale at. They will typically sell higher in an Antique Shop or Private sale compared to an auction.


If you are thinking of selling, I would check with your local Antique Shops in the area to see what yours or one like it would sell for or has sold for. As antiques and collectibles are subject in selling price to different areas across the country. They may sell higher on the west coast, then say in the mid west or the south. So be sure to check your local area. This will give you an idea of what it goes for in your area, then you can decide to sell locally or at one of the online markets.
