The Nippon era began in 1891 when the Japanese porcelain was clearly marked "Nippon" due to the McKinley Tariff Act. This act required that all porcelain be marked with the country of origin. ("Nippon" literally translates to "Japan".) This porcelain was made specifically to be exported to the west with designs and patterns that suited American's tastes. At that time, Japan had a thriving porcelain industry using methods used in Europe and the United States. In1921 the United States government changed its position and required that Japanese imports no longer be marked "Nippon", but with "Japan". This marks the end of the Nippon era. This plate is 6" in diameter and is beautifully painted with 5 petal pink flowers. This piece is in excellent condition.
