It was once produced only for feudal lords

In 1675, 31 of the best potters from the Arita and Imari areas of Hizen Province were gathered to produce gifts for the shogun. (Today, these areas are located in Saga Pref.) The potters established a clan pottery, marking the beginning of Nabeshima porcelain. The finely crafted works of the pottery were exclusively for shoguns and feudal lords. 

Ordinary people would never have the opportunity to use such items. For feudal lords, Nabeshima porcelain was a daily necessity.
