I was wondering what this is, is it rare and how much it is worth. The backmark is a green M (for Morimura, the name of the brothers who started the company in 1876) surrounded by a wreath which identifies it as 1910-1911. Above it is written "Hand Painted" and below is written "Nippon". It has a blue speckled glaze inside the bowl with a gold rim and butterfly motif. Sides and bottom are white. Also known as Noritake porcelain. It cost my brother 60 cents.
