Noritake is a very high quality vintage china from Japan. I have several pieces that I recently found at an estate sale and they had been packed away since 1976 according to the papers they were wrapped in in the attic. Each of the many pieces I have is in excellent condition, almost as if they'd never been used. They are all white with grey roses with white raised highlights on each. Pattern no. 6216 Rosay and all are marked. Start your collection or use for replacement pieces . Very good prices on some fine china.
