I’m very glad that you chose Mearto for your online appraisal,
Considering the photographs, overall pattern, porcelain quality and the colours, I concluded that this is a Japanese Noritake Porcelain Dinner Service. The piece dates back to the period between 1922-1940. Likely circa 1930. The dinner service is decorated accordingly to The Venice pattern. This pattern was used only for two time periods and with two different variations. The first series was accompanied by golden giltwork to pieces' rims and handles and was produced between 1922-1940, while the other The Venice pattern was accompanied by silver work to pieces' rims and handles later in the early 70's to 80's. This set of yours of course is the first type. This pattern is characterized by floral motifs shaping around yellow central flowers, a sort of simplified interpretation of the Venetian deocrative style. The set is composed of a total of 26 pieces as stated:
1 Pitcher 4.75 Inches Tall with two small chips on the rim, one more larger chip on bottom. 6 Plates 6.5 Inches of Diameter. 6 Plates 7.25 Inches of Diameter four of them flawless, one with a 3/4 Inches chip on top, one with some very tiny gilt wear. 5 Plates 8.25 Inches of diameter, four are very close to flawless with minor signes of use and age, one with a sizable 1 ınches to 0.5 Inches chip on top. 5 Saucers in unused condition. 2 Teacups in unused condition. 1 Round platter with handles.
The piece is in generally fair condition with various chips and cracks due to use and age. The sentimental value of this piece is of course far beyond our reach of evaluation.
