This china pattern is named “Claire” and was made by Noritake. The backstamp is pre-WWII (see below). My ninety pieces of Claire were a charity resale store find. The pieces appear to be unused. Shame on me as I have yet to use them.
The art deco border is very 1930s. There is fine detail in the pattern and nice coloring.
Did you notice the fine cutwork placemat? Here’s a little secret. The ‘lace’ is actually a soft vinyl that is cut and dimensional. When I first spotted a set of eight (still in a package) at a recent estate sale, I thought to myself, “Oh darn, they are plastic.” I then reconsidered as they were thin, delicate and pliable. Pretty yet practical for serving. I am glad I came to my senses and made that realization.
