Arita porcelain originated in the southern Japanese town of Arita in the early 17th century and became popular in The Netherlands when trade between the two countries has increased through the Dutch East India Company. The development of Arita porcelain stone which was founded by Korean potters in the mountains of its surrounding was highly effective via their knowledge, techniques and skills.
According to Rijks Museum information for the press '...Due to civil unrest in China after 1644, it had become difficult to order porcelain from the Chinese kilns.

The Dutch traders turned to Japan to fulfil their orders . In Arita, porcelain making had reached a high level of sophistication and the Dutch orders boosted the production. In the following centuries , the Dutch were the only Europeans allowed to trade with Japan and their long-standing involvement in the porcelain production in Arita gave rise to a rich interaction .
