Okura Art China was established in 1919 by Magobei Okura and his son, Kazuchika, to achieve their goal of "creating the finest chinaware" and the company has since strived to produce artistic chinaware. Today, "Sevres blue and Okura white" are judged to be of the best quality. With its "white, hard and smooth" porcelain, Okura has enjoyed a reputation as Japan's best chinaware maker. The company is also a member of Morimura Group, along with other ceramic-related companies such as Noritake, TOTO, NGK and NTK. See "History of Okura Art China". Okura Art China. Retrieved 2014-11-05.
