    This one is a bit of a puzzle. It looks like Victorian "barbotine" with applied roses. I thought is was a Noritake mark on the bottom. It was not. I now know this is actually made by Seyei Toki Co Ltd, or Moriyami Mori - machi of Japan around the 1920 -30's. It stands about 8" tall and 5" at it widest point. The roses are not evenly applied and it leaves a empty spot at the back. There is a clear seam running down the sides from the mold. It's not really a very refined piece. There are a lot of small pits and tiny bits and bumps in the finish. Still appealing though. A bit of damage to one leaf tip and a chipped edge as well. You really can't see it unless you tip the vase upside down. A small chip in the dry ring on the base too, can't see that either. All in all, in pretty nice shape for this type of piece. It looks to be very old. -Mike-

    History of Moriyama Pottery: Courtesy of : Rubell’s Antiques http://rubell.wordpress.com

    "Moriyama Pottery was located in Mori-Machi in Shizuoka Prefecture. Moriyama Pottery was established in 1911 by Hidekichi Nakamura who was taught pottery making by Seison Suzuki. There are currently four studios continuing the Moriyama tradition in and around Mori-machi and they are Seison, Seizon, Nakamura and Tame. There seems to be two primary stamps: one appears to be a crown with a wreath of leaves similar to the wreath found on the Noritake stamp. This stamp is marked “Moriyama Hand Paint Japan.” The other is a bouquet of flowers and is marked “Moriyama Made in Japan.”

      This is not the old Noritake Morimura Brothers mark, although similar, but I think it is Nippon. Will look into it because I've forgotten the name

      Can't believe I had someone on another forum complain to me about where I get my info and not referencing back to the source. They were wrong anyway. I didn't get the pottery history info from where they said anyway.I added the credit here though so everyone would know. Those other people are nit picking idiots! -Mike-
