Vintage From Paul is delighted to offer these simply stunning Fruit Dessert Bowls in the classic Azalea pattern from Noritake.

The delicate Noritake Azalea pattern was made by Noritake exclusively for the Larkin Company and was advertised in Larkin's catalogs from 1917 through 1940.

Noritake Azalea was then sold as premiums to the Larkin club members and their home agents.

The most popular Noritake pattern to date, a 1924 Larkin catalog describes Azalea as: Dainty, thin, white imported China beautifully decorated with hand-painted pink and white Azaleas and green leaves. Edges richly outlined in gold. For afternoon tea, they are ideal. A most attractive ornament for the china-closet, sideboard, or buffet.

The beautifully hand painted azaleas are light pink to pale fuchsia magenta. Their centers are yellow with a hint of orange and lovely white moriage - like enamel anthers. The leaves are various shades of yellow and green, including teal, accented by a touch of black.

The detailing is breath taking and exquisite. Certainly the artist that painted these pieces had a fine eye for dimension and detail.

The Antique Noritake Azalea Fruit Dessert Bowls are marked in Green with "Noritake, Hand Painted, Made in Japan,19322" There is also in green the Letter "M" enclosed in a wreath indicating Morimura Brothers and several Japanese characters.
