Noritake Co., Limited is a tableware and technology company headquartered in Nagoya, Aichi Prefecture, Japan.

Noritake Co, Limited, commonly known as "Noritake," grew out of a trading company established in Tokyo and in New York City by the Morimura Brothers in 1876. In 1904, key members of this trading company created the Nippon Toki Kaisha, Ltd. in Japan. Noritake's wares were mostly aimed at the European Market.

After various mergers the company now comes under the umbrella of the Nippon Toki Kaisha, Ltd. Most of the company's early wares carried one of the various “Nippon” back stamps to indicate its country of origin when exported to Western markets. Today, many collectors agree that the best examples of “Nippon-era” (1891-1921) hand painted porcelain carry a back stamp used by "Noritake" during the Nippon era.

The early marks from this period seems to have been the country of origin i.e Ni hon or "Nippon" written by brush in traditional Japanese Kanji characters. The word "Nippon " also meaning Japan but in western characters
