During World War II, Noritake almost entirely stopped production of tableware. U.S. also banned Japanese imports. When the war ended in 1945, Japan had very little resources. Consequently, Noritake wasn't able to produce its high quality tableware. To preserve their brand, they marketed their products as Rose China. By around 1947, they returned to using their Noritake trademarks. Of course, from 1947-1952, all exports to the U.S. Had the required "Occupied Japan" back stamp. See Bob Page, Dale Frederiksen, and Dean Six. "Noritake: Jewel of the Orient". Page/Frederiksen Publication, North Carolina (2001).
