This porcelain bowl is 4.5" in diameter x 2.25" high. It is marked on the bottom "NO 1" in a crown topped wreath with "Royal Porcelain 24 k Gold" under that. It is so thin that I can see the shadow of my hand moving through it.
It was a $.50 thrift shop find today. I was really excited when I found it because I thought it was a Noritake rice bowl. After looking through all of the marks used by Noritake, though, I finally realized that it is not Noritake, not a rice bowl and probably not even Japanese. Sigh.
Does anyone know who made this bowl and what its purpose is?
