Noritake Hand Painted Wall Pocket

Noritake can be very expensive and quite collectable. The brand is was originally established in 1876 in Japan, so as you could imagine, they have quite a rich history. Many of their pieces are renowned for their high quality, excellent design, and incredible colors. Noritake china is also known for its excellent durability. Most of what they make is vitrified porcelain, and so it is resistant to chips, breaks, and other damage.


One of the most interesting pieces they have ever made is pictured in this hub and the video above is a video I made about one of them that I have in my collection. This one says "Noritake Hand Painted" on the Back. This one is known as a "Lusterware" wall pocket. It hangs flat against a wall and you can fill it with flowers or just hang it as is. It can hold water but I like the way it looks just as it is. It is a very unique statement piece. This one in particular glimmers when the light hits it, and it is very glossy.

Noritake also makes a whole bunch of different fine china sets, vases, and other decorations. Some are worth more than others but the ones that are obviously worth the most are the ones that are older and hand painted. Some of these can go for a fortune at Auctions or on Ebay. The wall pocket in this picture can be found for around $50 but some of the more intricate ones can go for $75 or more. I love to collect it if I can get it cheap enough, but I could say that about a lot of things!
