Fukagawa Seiji Company

In 1894 Chuji Fukagawa, a student of Makuzu Kozan, founded the Fukagawa (fuka = mountain, gawa = river) porcelain company. His idea was to gather the best artists in Japan to shape and paint porcelain for export to the rest of the world. He entered a large vase at the Paris International Exposition in 1900 and won the gold medal. Another gold medal was won at the World's Fair in St. Louis in 1904, and in 1910 the Fukagawa Company became purveyor for the Imperial Household of Japan.

The Fukagawa family has been making porcelain since the 17th century and is still doing so today.
