Nippon Catch-All Tray
This is a lovely floral Catch-All Tray. Stamped on the bottom with Nippon. Measures 6″.
Nippon porcelain refers to vases, teapots, wall plaques, and other ceramic objects stamped with the word Nippon on their bases. The practice began in 1891 in response to the U.S. McKinley Tariff Act, which forbade the import of items that weren’t “plainly marked, stamped, branded, or labeled in legible English words.” Nippon is an English word approximating a pronunciation of the Japanese word for Japan, but in 1921, the word was ruled Japanese in origin, so Nippon was no longer accepted by U.S. Customs Agents. From then on, imported Japanese china was stamped Japan.
The Price for the Tray: $65
I believe age makes simple objects more beautiful. And the magic of Antiques & Vintage is the magic and sweetness that attaches itself to objects passed from one set of hands to another. Thank you for adding a lovely Antique or Vintage item to your collection, each personally sourced by The Curious Cowgirl herself.
