1930s Vintage Noritake 53-Piece China Set

LOVELY VINTAGE 53-PIECE JAPANESE NORITAKE CHINA SET
This beautiful set of vintage Japanese Noritake china dates from the 1930’s. For some reason Noritake didn’t put a pattern name or number on the backstamp between 1930 and 1939. However, the Noritake M Wreath hallmark was used from 1921 – 1940. I was able to put a fairly accurate date on this set based on the fact that this particular backstamp was patented in 1933 and remained in use until the start of WWII.

I have been unable to find this lovely delicate floral pattern anywhere, but am still looking. If I find the exact pattern name I will update this listing with that info. If any Noritake China experts out there happen to know the name of this pattern, please drop me a line!
This set was a wedding gift to my husband’s mother and has only been used for family holidays and special occasions over the past 70-80 years. When not in use the set has always remained well-protected in my china cabinet. This set is in excellent condition, only a few very minor nicks in a few pieces. One small chip on the platter. No cracks or crazing. Gold trim is also in very good to excellent condition.
CASH ONLY. SORRY, NO DELIVERY/SHIPPING AVAILABLE FOR THIS ITEM. MUST BE PICKED UP LOCALLY IN SW OKC.

* I also have a fine set of Oneida Community vintage silverware that was used by my family on special occasions and goes nicely with this china. The silverware set (complete with original wood storage case lined with blue velvet) is available for sale separately.
