Noritake porcelain was made in Japan after 1904 by Nippon Toki Kaisha. A maple leaf mark was used from 1891 to 1911. The best-known Noritake pieces are marked with the M in a wreath for the Morimura Brothers, a New York City distributing company. This mark was used primarily from 1911 to 1921 but was last used in the early 1950s. The N mark was used from 1940 to the 1960s, and N Japan from 1953 to 1964. Noritake made dinner sets with pattern names. In 1914, white dishes with a cream border and a spray of flowers, the first porcelain dinnerware sets, were exported to the United States. There may be some helpful price information in the Nippon category, since prices are comparable. Noritake Azalea is listed in the Azalea category.
