Vintage Noritake coffee set, 1950s 1960s

All things old and beautiful is just a simple blog about collecting and buying and selling vintage and antique porcelain, glass, metalware, kitchenalia, sometimes jewellery, furniture, clothes and even fabrics.

Sometimes I just see gorgeous things at auction and I can’t buy them all but it’s helpful to have photos and do some research and have a reference to look back on, so in essence I’m using this blog as a research tool but also hoping that I can help some other people along the way to gain some valuable information.

The coffee set above was made by the Japanese Porcelain company Noritake and carries their mark on the base, which comes in a variety of colours depending on years.  If you want to learn more about Japanese porcelain you should ideally take a look at this site as it’s pretty much the definitive guide to Japanese porcelain marks, there are others too.  http://www.gotheborg.com/marks/20thcenturyjapan.shtml
