5 "M" Cherry Blossom Mark
Creamer, Sugar Bowl, Covered Bowl, Salt & Pepper Shakers
A very lovely 5-piece set of Nippon china, marked with a 5-M cherry blossom mark, which I haven't been able to identify (similar to Van Patten's #4). These pieces are hand-decorated with a brilliant orange flower design with twining leaves, thick gold trim, small gold beads, all on a bluish-gray body with white interiors. This listing of antique Japanese Nippon ware includes the following:
Creamer--3 inches high at rim, 3.25 inches high at the spout tip, 3.25 inches wide across the foot ring. In very good to excellent condition.
Sugar bowl with lid--3 inches high at rim, 4 inches high at tip of handle, 5.5 inches wide across the handles, 4-1/8 inches wide across the foot ring. In very good condition, a little wear to the gold trim around the foot ring.
Covered bowl with handles--5.25 inches wide across the open rim, 6.25 inches across the handles, 3.75 inches high at top of finial handle, and 4 inches wide across the foot ring. In excellent condition.
Salt and pepper shakers--2.75 inches high, 2 inches wide near foot ring. 17 holes. Very good condition. Corks have been pushed inside, so are not usable. Some wear to the gold trim around the rims.
Generally, these pieces are in very good to excellent condition, with just a bit of wear to the gold trim. The orange flower designs, gold beads, and twining leaves are colorful and make an extraordinary display.
The marks on the 3 large pieces are very faded and worn (impossible for me to make out). The marks on the salt and pepper shakers are a little clearer, and that's where you can see the 5-M cherry blossom mark in a circle, surrounded by "Hand Painted" and the word "Nippon."
