NIKKO is a Japanese manufacturer of fine ceramics, known for its tableware products. It was founded in 1908 in Kanazawa, Ishikawa by Lord Maeda and other local nobles. The Maeda lords especially fostered arts and crafts, and made Kanazawa a cultural center like Tokyo and Kyoto. Originally they sold ironstone ceramics and became well known. After WWII NIKKO products were spreading into Japanese homes and by the 1970’s they had broadened their line. Western materials such as bone china were introduced and developed using NIKKO’s own advanced technologies. Today all aspects of production from glaze formulation to mould making are manufactured in-house by Nikko’s team of craftspeople. The resulting pieces are some of the finest quality ceramics in Japan. For more than 100 years they have produced tableware for fine retail stores, as well as for leading hotels and restaurants worldwide. Today they are regarded as a market leader in fine bone china production. NIKKO is the only manufacturer in Japan still producing the much loved Blue Willow pattern, which they call ““Sansui”, and it’s their most famous pattern.
