Lipper & Mann ( L&M Bond Ware ) early mark. Condition is excellent with no repairs or problems. Pretty piece with a history that is not often told. Lipper & Mann is much like Noritake in that they designed and had their wares produced in Japan. Offices in New York. Also still in business. Many fine pieces of quality dinnerware has been produced by this company. Too bad most people are not aware of their decorative items. What that means for you is a chance to get a good item on the cheap. This pretty little piece is around 5 1/2" tall by 4" at its widest (includes the handle). The gold trim is still very good. Ships at no additional cost.
