Indisputably the largest and most comprehensive book available on Noritake, Noritake Collectibles A to Z: A Pictorial Record & Guide to Value presents more than 1000 pieces in classical, Art Nouveau, and Art Deco styles with both luster and non-luster finishes are presented, as well as a wide variety of post-war bone china figurines and recent collector-series items such as Valentine's Day hearts and Easter eggs. Since 1904, Noritake has been bringing beauty and quality to dinner tables around the world. Superior artistry and craftsmanship, attention to detail and uncompromising commitment to quality have made Noritake an international trademark during this past century. The Noritake of today grew out of a trading company that was originally established by the Morimura Brothers in New York in 1876. This trading company imported chinaware, curios, paper lanterns and other gift items. In 1904, the forerunner of the Noritake Company was established in the village of Noritake, a small suburb near Nagoya, Japan. The goal of this first factory was to create western style dinnerware for export. It took until 1914, however, to create the first porcelain dinnerware plate that was suitable for export. The time span covered in this book is greater than any other book in this field, including non-dinnerware "Noritake"-marked porcelains made between 1908-1995. Most of the items presented in this comprehensive volume have never before been seen in books on this subject. Chapters reviewing the history of the Noritake Company and trends in Noritake collecting, as well as photos of extremely rare pages from Noritake sales books are included. A comprehensive essay regarding the identification of Noritake backstamps with exclusive full-color photos of each stamp round out the book. The high-quality photographic materials are very clearly and carefully organized, making the book extremely easy to use as a reference tool for both novices and experts. Author David Spain is an avid collector and chronicler of Noritake and lives in the great Northwest.
