Antique Sugar Bowl and Creamer, Meito Nippon, Hand Painted Floral and Blue Bird, Gold Trimmed
A beautiful sugar bowl and creamer set by Meito. It was made in Nippon (Japan) and the pattern consists of hand painted orange and red flowers, a blue bird, cream colored band, and gold trim. This is an antique set dating from the early 1910s. What a wonderful statement this set will make on your table, buffet, or sideboard.
The name Nippon was used before the U.S. McKinley Tariff Act, which forbade the import of items that were not “plainly marked, stamped, branded, or labeled in legible English words.” Nippon is the English spelling of a pronunciation of what Americans call Japan, but in 1921, the word was ruled Japanese in origin, so Nippon was no longer accepted by U.S. Customs Agents thereafter. This dates the pieces from before the McKinley Tariff act demanded that "Japan" was to be used.
