What is Nikko China made out of?

1. Nikko Fine Bone China

Bone China modeled after white porcelain of the Orient, was first created in England 200 years ago by the epoch-making ceramic technique of firing clay mixed with bone ash. Nikko China has succeeded in creating the highest-quality Bone China with 50% bone ash content. With the deepness of its pure white color and superb translucency, Nikko Fine Bone China is the whitest bone china in the worldwide market and has a reputation of unparalleled durability and chip-resistance.

2. Nikko Fine China

Nikko has achieved an epochmaking firing temperature as high as 1450 C, to produce the highest quality fine porcelain dinnerware. The silky smooth surface, remarkable translucency and pristine whiteness of Nikko China is second to none.

3. Porcelain

In line with Nikko China's long range manufacturing objectives to meet today's market demand, Nikko introduced a new line of reinforced porcelain dinnerware. The soft blue body coloration of this new Nikko dinnerware, not only reflects the tastes of ancient Japan, but also blends very well with today's' domestic and institutional decors and demands. In addition, Nikko's China porcelain dinnerware offers a higher durability over traditional porcelain dinnerware.

4. Ironstone

Nikko China has 89 years' experience in the manufacture of fine ironstone. In contrast to the cool white of ordinary porcelain, the color of fine Ironstone is warm milky white. Ironstone is more heat-insulating and more resistant to physical shock than conventional porcelain ware. The underglazed painting looks perpetually fresh and will never fade or wear off. Nikko China's Ironstone is quite safe for use in regular and microwave ovens.

The History of Nikko China

99 years of Tradition of Nikko China

In 1905, in the city of Kanazawa, production of semi-porcelain dinnerware was attempted for the first time in Japan. Nihon Koshitsu Toki Co., Ltd. was established in 1908 by the former feudal lord family, Maeda and some prominent members of the community. In 1917 as a pioneer in the manufacture of semi-porcelain dinnerware, Nikko China started operations in Pusan, Korea to further upscale its production. Experiencing the ordeal of World War II, Nikko China's technology, fostered by its long course of history, came into bloom in the early sixties. In 1961, Nikko china moved its head office and plant to Ishikawa prefecture to set the integrated production line with modern equipment and facilities. With this move, Nikko China secured a position as a leading semi-porcelain dinnerware manufacturer. Anticipating the trend of the times and helped by its innovative technology, Nikko China has developed various kinds of materials such as fine bone china, fine vitrified china, fine porcelain, oven ware and decoration tile. Entering successfully into the hotel and restaurant ware market in the 80's was another stride of Nikko China. Continuous development of products satisfies various requirements of hoteliers and caterers around the world. In 1983 as an expression of determination to make further strides with the approach of the 21st century, a new corporate name was adopted from Nihon Koshitsu Toki Co., Ltd. to Nikko China Company. Nikko dinnerware have developed in parallel with the history of dinnerware in Japan and have been exported to America through Nikko Ceramics, Inc. since 1968. Nikko china today is manufactured in Japan, Malaysia and Thailand and is completely at home around the world.
