** Did you know that many Made In Japan pieces were lost to us? The U.S. imported untold tons of pottery from Japan; colorful patterns that brightened the kitchens of Depression weary Americans. Then, the Japanese bombed Pearl Harbor. Shopkeepers and housewives across the United States destroyed their Japan pieces in protest and horror over the events of December 7, 1941. Others packed them away in storerooms and attics, not to be used again. Few survived, and the ones that did are precious, happy pieces that can instantly brighten a shelf, cabinet or table. We adore these pieces, and are so excited to be bringing our own collection to you! **
