China set of 12. Four sizes of plates including dinner plates (eleven - broken in past), salad plates and tea cup plates, soup bowls, and smaller bowls (finger bowls), ten tea cups, three different size serving bowls, and two (larger and a smaller) serving platters, sugar bowl (missing lid) and cream pitcher (handle broken off). One very small chip on one cup. Otherwise, the collection is in mint condition. RARELY used. I've had collection for 50 years. It was given to me by my mother. My stepfather, who was in the Air Force brought it back from Japan. The stamp on the bottom says 'Noritake Japan 6604 Janatte. In the center there is a wreath with an 'N' in the middle and a bow at the bottom. The design on the china is a single rose, gray and pale pink. I can send pictures.
My stepfather was in the Air Force, and I believe he brought it from Japan for my mother over 50 years ago.
