Value of Noritake China

I have a set of Noritake china, including a serving plate, 6 side plates, 5 saucers, and 4 cups with the burgundy Meruki stamp, "Made in Japan". I can't find an exact design match on the internet to determine the design or value, if any. Do you know anything about this set please?

Your pattern is Bantry (N Bant) and according to history of Noritake marks this particular marking was first used in 1908. Replacements and most other sites show this pattern as 1930 with no ending date (although we know it has ended). Most likely the pieces that were shipped to the US started in 1930-1931.
Bantry can be found listed for sale on eBay, Etsy and other sites. I did not find any piece sold on eBay over the past several months so unless you can find where any pieces have recently sold you have no basis to find a 'current value' as listing prices are just what a seller would like to receive for their items and items like this can remain up for sale for many months; even years and some never sell.


China is just not a sought after item and this present crisis has not helped the market. You can check out the pieces you have to see what other sellers are asking and you can place a watch on eBay pieces to see if any sell.

Replacements has a few pieces listed for sale and you can always contact them to see if they are interested in purchasing your items. Their price will be low but at least you would know for future reference.

Here is the link to Bantry on Google:

These are lovely pieces, highly sought after, sense they are discontinued. has a few pieces if you want to add to your collection.


If you want to sell, you could advertise on the various sites, along with good staging!
