    I would love to know exactly how old my great-grandmother's Noritake Sedalia china is, and how to get more. Tradition says it was her wedding gift. My grandmother was the 4th child born in 1915, so her mother would have been married several years before that.
    I have seen pieces for sale, however they all have the red letter stamp, which I believe Noritake began using post 1920 when they started assembly line work. The stamp on the back of my pieces is beautifully multi-colored, gold and black with a blue leafy wreath around the "M". It also says 'JAPAN', not 'made in Japan' which also makes me think it is pre-1920.

    Any info is greatly appreciated!

      I just found the wedding info. My great grand mother got married in 1898. Is it possible that the china is THAT OLD?

      comments below are from this site

      The first reported U.S. registry for a Noritake back stamp for importing is 1911. Noritake first produced dinnerware for the American market in 1914

      853. Mark: Letter "N" as in "Nippon Toki" surrounded by a wreath, crowned by "Noritake" in handwritten logotype format and below, "Japan". A similar mark with an "M" in the middle was registered already in 1933 and used until 1940. This mark with the N, was registered in 1953 both in Japan and North America and is currently in use.

      The M in the centre of yours tells us it was made for Noritake by Morimura Brothers. The marks was used between 1921-45, according to marks4antiques. The Noritake collector’s guild of Australia gives you free access to some information, such as the backstamps, so I have added a link below. You may be able to contact them for more info on your particular pattern.
