Vintage From Paul is delighted to offer this lovely, hand painted floral Nappy from Meito China of Japan. From the hallmark on the nappy we date this nappy to the period of 1921-1928.

The fine white porcelain serves as the perfect canvas for the hand painted floral spray done in a palette of blue accented with green foliage. The inner verge is a wide banding of light blue banded in gold. There is also gold detailing of the curved handle.

Meito was founded in 1908 as Nagoya Seito Sho by former Noritake engineer Kotero Asukai. Production bore the backstamp "Meito," which means "fine sword" or "excellent sword." The name is, no doubt, a nod to the company's headquarters in Nagoya, Japan, a city famed for its shrine of the sacred sword that is one of Japan's crown jewels. As other Noritake engineers and artists joined Asukai, Meito wares came to closely resemble those of its competitor.

Stunning and classic!
