While there is evidence that transfer-printed British ceramics from Staffordshire and Sunderland were exported to Japan, via Nagasaki, during the Edo period (1603-1868), it is unclear how much technological influence these small volumes exerted. However, the rapid post-war industrialisation of production in Seto meant that European and American manufacturing processes, including slipcasting, transfer printing and flower-making, were steadily adopted and assimilated by producers. Ironically, while vestiges of the novelty industry remain, Seto now faces similar economic challenges to those experienced by the original European centres of production, including Staffordshire.
