Kutani china and porcelain is very popular, collectible and very beautiful to own. Although this kind of porcelain china is old, many pieces are still intact and are bought and sold on the antiques markets all over the world.
China-making in Kutani dates back around 340 years to the middle of the 17th century. As part of a policy to encourage local industry, a kiln to make colored porcelain was established at Kutani village, now in Ishikawa Prefecture, when high-quality china clay was discovered there. Potters were brought from Hizen (in present-day Saga Prefecture), which was known at the time as a center of porcelain production. This was the beginning of the local manufacture of colored china.
