About Osaka naniwa pewterware

Tin and pewterware is believed to have been introduced to Japan during the Japanese missions to Sui China in the 6th and 7th century. Originally, tin was used to craft religious articles, and their use was limited to a select few. During the Edo period (1603-1868), pewterware production flourished in Osaka, and their use spread to the common folk.
