My Unknown China Collection

I love this china!
Can anyone give me a clue as to what kind it is. I have been in touch with, but they cannot help me. It is missing mugs or tea cups and saucers and I would like to get some of these to complete the set.

I commented on the set when my friend owned it about 10 years ago. Not long after that as we were helping her move once again, she said that they would stay at the new home until they retired.
I told her "wanna make a bet?" I was just joking...not believing her as they had an above average number of moves in their history.
Next thing I knew she said,"If we move then you get this china!"
I explained to her I was just joking, and did not really believe that they would stay there that long, but did not want her to give up the china.
A year or two later the china was mine. I did not want to take it, but she insisted!
Here it is in it's entirety.

This set consists of:
1 lrg. platter
1 sm. platter
1 gravy boat
3 serving bowls(2/w lids)
12 dinner plates
12 luncheon plates
9 bread and butter plates
11 soup bowls
11 dessert bowls

These are the only markings that this china has. It looks like a W. Then a different number on each type of dish.

Here is the dinner plate.

Here are some of the serving dishes that make this set fabulous!

Any help anyone can offer me on the identification of this set would be greatly appreciated.


  1. Sorry I have no idea, but it is really pretty :)

  2. I'm surprised that there isn't even one piece that's marked. Have you checked them all? It looks very much like an old Noritake, but of course I'm only guessing.

    Very pretty. I mean, VERY pretty!


  3. I'm pretty sure I have a few pieces of this packed away (from my mom-in-law's things). Sure looks familiar.
