Hi. My name is Diana.

.

There is no one specific database that keeps records on china patterns. There is replacements.com, robbinsnest and a few other online sources along with a few record databases that you have to pay to access. Even those sites don't have all the records. In all honestly, you may not be to find the actual pattern name. Noritake has been around for well over a hundred years and produced tens of thousands of patterns. Only about 15% of the names are known. They used names and numbers and they did a lot of variations for specific retailers. Plus all the wars caused major problems with the original factories and records were lost or purged.

.

If you could send a picture, I could run through the ones I have access to and try to find it, but I can't guarantee I'll find it.

.

To send photos:

If your message box has a blue box that says "attach file" or a paper clip icon you can use that to upload photos. If not then you can click this link for instructions on uploading images
