About 5 years ago my Mother passed leaving me all this wonderful stuff. Mostly dolls but a lot of glass, pottery, etc. too. I have an antique vanity set with porcelain china round tray, matching tall hat pin holder, footed cotton ball holder and exact dish w/o lid. Nippon or Noritake painted style with "Hand Painted / Made in Japan" on bottom in green with Double T's in double diamonds. Painted purple violets, green leaves and with gold rim edges. Background color darker yellow to cream tops.

I would like to know mfg maker name. And is there more to the set? What is conservative value?

Update on query - Is TT Diamond Pottery Mark (aka Double 'T', Japan) Takito?

Update on query - Is TT Diamond Pottery Mark (aka Double 'T', Japan) Takito?

Note:- Thanks to Jehna (a specialist Japanese collector) on her updates and sharing her research on this mark.

This mark is one of the standard mark of the Japaense company called The Takito Company (1880-1948). Known for lustreware (lusterware) decoration taken originally from the technical developments done at Noritake. They also made moriage wares in the Satsuma style and many other types of tablewares.

The diamond/rectangle pottery mark with the "T-T" mark is found on much of their lustreware production and so likely dates from the 1920' and 30's when this decoration style was fashionable.

The period 1913-1926 is referred to as the Taisho period. The 1930's onwards is the Showa period.

I have a couple matching pieces that have the double t mark, but the ts are lower case, more script looking, and without the diamonds. Is this an authentic mark?

TT double T tea set hand painted
by: Patrick

I also have a 6 place cup, saucer with a tea pot, one double handle small pot with a lid and a small creamer with a pour spout. I think this set was a wedding present for my parents in 1932. They have a water scene with a swan, two trees and a colorful sunset painted on. the painting carries onto the lid of the one with a lid. The saucers are also painted. These have the double T in diamonds which is only visible on some of the pieces. They are so pretty and fragile looking and somehow are still here.

Company
by: Sherry

The company in Japan who made your porcelain piece was the "TAKITO COMANY". The Takito company 1880-1948, is mostly known as one of those specializing on the Lustre ware type of decoration originally developed by the Noritake company but pieces with moriage decoration in Moriage a'la Kyoto Satsuma on porcelain, are also common. Between 1891 to 1921 the products should be marked 'Nippon'. Marks later than 1945 usually comes with the addition of "Made in Occupied Japan ".

Mark: "T T" in two rectangles. Date: probably late 20s to early 1930s when this type of ware was mostly in vougue.

I'd like to get in contact with the person that commented:

I'd like to contact the person that commented on the china ware with the double T's in rectangles or diamond shapes and stated it may have been given as a wedding present in 1932. We neeed to talk.
