CHARM OF NORITAKE COTTAGE-WARE PORCELAIN

By: John Hogan

The history of Noritake started with the Morimura brothers, Baron Ichizaemon Morimura and his younger brother Yutaka Morimura who established a trading company Morimura-kumi in Ginza in 1876.

Prior to the cottage-ware dinnerware lines, elaborate vases with bold floral designs and bold colors with gold accents were produced to capture the more affluent household. Afterwords Noritake had created many lines of dinnerware that have permeated world trade and have entered many a home through the nation. Such wares have become treasured by many and have gracefully adorned many a kitchen or dining room for over several generations.

A special line of colorful dinnerware was that of the Cottage Scenes. These scenes were tranquil and always gave the table a glow of charming invite to its guests. The scenes were partially transfer-printed and hand-painted and were often in hues of yellow, pink, blue and orange. Such wares became prevalent during 1925-1950. Such scenes became popular with American and Canadian folk at the time and today are often seen as decorative wares at the country cottage.
