This pretty pair of hand painted china doves was manufactured in Japan for the Norcrest China Company. Started in 1921 as an import company in Portland, Oregon, it was incorporated in 1958 as Norcrest China Company. Much of their imported items were simply marked Japan, without the manufacturer's name. Norcrest would then apply their label or package the item in a Norcrest box, both of which were easily lost. The label or mark on these doves may be under the black felt on the bases, which we did not want to remove. We have had another identical set with the Norcrest foil label so we‘re confident these are Norcrest.

The male dove displays his clawed feet, standing 7 ½ inches tall and is 5 ¾ inches from beak to tip of tail. The female dove is roosting; she is 6 inches tall and 6 inches long. They appear to be laughing doves, based on their colorations. The bases are shaded to look like the ground; the doves have recessed eyes and very delineated feathers. There are no chips, cracks, nicks or crazing to mar the beautiful hand painting.© Linda Henrich
