Lustreware (Lusterware)

A look that Noritake popularized in the early 1920s through the mid-1930s was lustreware. Lustreware used bright single-color glazes over which a thin metallic film was applied, resulting in a rainbow of iridescence. Art deco theme decals and hand paintings were often used with luster finishes to create stunning period objects. Japanese lustreware is not uncommon, and Noritake marked lustreware represents today only a fraction of the total 20th Century Japanese lustreware products available today.
