I went to Tableware festival at Tokyo Dome (2016.1.31-2.8,)＊. Noritake Co., Ltd. has a special exhibition.
Noritake was established in 1904. Noritake makes beautiful, white, refined western ceramic tableware in Japan.
Old Noritake has been popular in Europe. Especially pictures of Japonism in the art nouveau of Noritake have been popular. Even the current Noritake collection has Old Japanese patterns and styles.
