A set of china for sale. Riviera pattern of Meito china. Norleans group. Made in Occupied Japan.

Send me a message if you are interested.

Meito china
Riviera pattern
Made in occupied Japan with Orleans also inscribed.

These are the pieces:
7- 6.25” saucers
10- 6.25” plates
12- 10” plates
12- 7.5” plates
12- 8” bowls
4- 6” bowls
1- creamer
1- cup
1- sugar bowl lid
1 - 9” tray
2 - 13” trays/ bowls
1- 18” tray
1- tureen lid
1- tureen
The china is in excellent shape. The creamer has a chip but that is all.

This china was used only once a year if that. All of the pieces were not used each time.

My Daddy got this china for my Mama sometime in the early 1950s. He fought in WWII. He ran the family farm when he got back. After his siblings were out of high school, he got married. He took a job with a new insurance company and worked there for 30 years. This china says “Made in Occupied Japan” It also has the word “Norleans” on it.
This link will take you to a short history of the Japanese china industry. Meito was founded when a man split from the Nagoya Seito Sho company which made the Noritake china patterns. This happened in the early 1900s. This company still makes china today.

It effing snowed here in NE South Carolina yesterday.

Our climate patterns are broken. I have said this for a while.
We are in a shitload of trouble.
Insects are disappearing at an alarming rate.
Weather events are extreme.
The ice is melting faster than expected and more heat is building up in the oceans.

I was reading an article about farming being in trouble in my area and similar areas. Why? Salt. Saltwater is moving into the groundwater along the coast. There has always been a different ecosystem where fresh water and salt water meet. Now that is getting effed up.

In addition, farmers are discovering brown patches where plants have died in different areas. Why?
Those huge hurricanes that dropped enough rain to bring arks to mind are dropping salt water. This has probably always been a factor but a minor one.

Thus sayeth the Grim Sneaker.
Mother Nature done got tired off all our shit. She saying you wanna mess with MY HOME? I will show you real messing.
