* In 1904, the Noritake Company was established in the village of Noritake, a small suburb near Nagoya, Japan.
* Koyo or “red leaves" design; designates the natural process of the leaves changing colors in fall / autumn. Appreciating nature and the changing of the seasons has long been a part of Japanese culture.
* Until 1921, porcelain was marked with its country of origin to comply with the U.S. McKinley Tariff Act of 1890. This law changed in 1921, requiring the place of origin be marked in English, so stamps were changed from “Nippon,” a more formal translation of the country’s name, to “Japan” or “Made in Japan.”
* RARITY: The oldest Noritake china is the most valuable and rare. During the beginning of the 19th century, not many examples were produced, so their hand-painted features are in-demand. Some of the rarest items include bulbous vases, pancake jugs, ASHTRAYS, and even children’s sets.
* BACKSTAMP: Includes a tree, later changed to spears to symbolize breaking through obstacles, and a circle for peaceful settlement of problems (see photos).
