Antique Nippon Hand Painted Vase Gold Moriage And Roses - Wreath Stamp. 8.5 inches tall and approximately 6 inches wide.
For its age, this is a BEAUTIFUL VASE!! Hand Painted Nippon' was a phrase commonly heard during the Nippon era from 1868 to 1921. Japanese porcelain made for export to the United States from 1891 to 1921 is called "Nippon Porcelain" because the word "Nippon" was on each piece. The word "Nippon" was required by the McKinley Tariff Act of 1890. This law stated that all manufactured goods imported to the United States be marked with the country of origin.Since "Nippon" was the Japanese word for the country of Japan, porcelain made there for the U. Market was marked "Nippon" to comply with the new law. American trade officials accepted "Nippon" as the name of the country of origin until 1921. At that time, it was ruled that "Nippon" was a Japanese word.
Since the law required the country of origin to be an English word, the use of "Nippon" was forbidden from 1921 on. The item "Antique Nippon Hand Painted Vase Gold Moriage And Roses" is in sale since Friday, April 12, 2019.
