This is my first post, so I hope I am asking in the correct forum. I am unpacking boxes long forgotten and came across the pictured condiment set. It is marked on the bottom "The Kinode" in red and a green "Japan" I believe one of my Mother's brothers brought it back to US after WWII. Can anyone enlighten me about it? Or suggest a website for research? Thank you!
Are you sure it doesn't say "The Hinode?" The Hinode was a department store in Japan. I don't know if it's still in business as a store, but I've seen Hinode rice here in Oregon.

Well DUH!! It does say Hinode! I will do some more research. I have previously found plates (dinnerware) when I searched but nothing like this. I am just wondering if it is worth finding a niche for it or if it should go into the donation pile! Thanks for your guidance on this.
This style is called "dragonware". search for that term on ebay and you will find lots of examples.
