CIRCA: Marked on the bottom with the green Morimura wreath with text "Hand-Painted" and "Nippon", this piece dates to the early 1900s.
FACTS & HISTORY:
The Japanese used "Nippon," which was the English equivalent of the Japanese word for Japan. It was not until 1921 that the United States changed the law so that pieces had to be marked "Japan," not "Nippon." These laws make it easy for today's collectors to identify Nippon china. It was made between 1891 and 1921.
