Antique Nippon hand-painted hatpin holder. Circa 1880. This porcelain hatpin holder has a striking floral design accented with gold moriage (beading). Raised gold outlines the flowers and rims the top and base of the piece. There are eight holes for hatpins plus a large hole in the center of the top. Unmarked, this holder is unmistakably the product of Morimura Brothers, which produced and stamped the same design after 1881 (once they were required to do so in order to export wares into the United States).
It stands 5¼ inches (13.5 cm) tall and the base is 3½ inches (9 cm) in diameter.
The holder is in excellent condition with no damage or losses and no wear to the painting or to the lavish gold.
