One guideline to help you guess age can be the country of origin. Before 1890, items imported into the United States were not required to contain a mark showing the country of origin.
But as the Japanese economy developed and grew more robust, their production focus changed from friction motor lady bug toys to the automotive and electronics industries.
That opened opportunities for other countries which had previously had virtually no trade relations with the United States.
Featured is a matching set of smaller and larger lidded pitchers.
Both are white with a bright multicolored floral design and orange trim dating to the 1940s and 1950s.
