Small Pitcher, Creamer, Hand Painted, Nippon
This is a small pitcher that states "Hand Painted in Nippon" on the bottom. The pitcher is round and the handle is made in a circle. The scene painted on the creamer is done in green and is of a swan floating on a river with trees in the background. This would be a nice display piece for the collector.
3 inches in diameter
5 1/2 inches from spout to handle
3 1/3 inches in diameter
The stamp "made in Nippon" came about because of 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.
This pitcher is around 100 years old and as such is in good condition. This item shows it's years of use and love. There are small flaws such as various crazing around the rim and on the bottom. The crazing looks like cracks but they don't go all the way through the porcelain. Our price reflects these imperfections.
