Tthe bone china white blacks have been hand-painted in rich autumnal shades of orange, peach, rust, tan, blue, with gold trim dark brown and black detail. Note the tree extend through top in an artistic touch.According to Van Patten in "The Collector's Encyclopedias of Noritake," collectors named the pattern `Tree in Meadow' (not Noritake); old Larkin catalogs called it "`Colorful Scenic Pattern in Hand Painted Imported Noritake China' (1930), or `Popular Scenic Pattern Imported Noritake China' (1934)."
