    The mark is the same as on Aimathenas - it is a Noritake mark circa 1911-1921

    The Noritake Collector’s Guild of Australia gives free access to their porcelain history and marks. I believe that you can also contact the about valuations or help with a pattern identification. Here’s a link:

    Noritake before 1921, when they had to use Japan instead of Nippon. American collector David Spain published several books about Noritake wares. This is one of their better quality marks, the green wreath.
    The set is just delicious, a partial chocolate set, you can tell what it is for by the pot's height, with a large spout right at the top of the body.

    Thanks idcloisonne, I have been looking and have seen nothing like this one. Any idea of the value? I have 6 cups/saucers and the pot.

    Noritake porcelain dating pre 1940 is highly collectable. Problem is that with the advent of all the easy internet sales, the number of pieces available has decreased the value to the point it's not worth selling.
    This is slowly correcting itself. I would wait. Have a look at Ebay's completed sales for an idea of sale value range.

    Definitely Nippon. If you can find a copy of Joan Van Patten's book "ABC's of Collecting Nippon" you'll find yellow pieces, "xanthic" on page 305. The illustration is also a chocolate pot with cups and saucers. Chocolate pots tend to be taller than tea pots. Not sure why though.

    Thanks I'll look it up. Just getting into this so thankful for any insight. Have always just picked up what I liked but now looking to "collect" lol
