For instance, the coralene process of decorating porcelain, specifically Nippon porcelain, shows painted colors against a background and raised elements in the design.

Atop the application of painted colors, there are clear glass beads which were applied and melted in the firing process to fuse with the object's body.

If the new firm took the name "Great Pottery, Inc.," it would then be listed as dating from 1820.

If "Terry and Son" had bought "Ralph Ltd.," the new company would be dated from 1840.

Nippon porcelain was made in Japan from 1891 to 1921.

Nippon is the Japanese word for "Japan." Nippon porcelain was made to be exported to the west, with designs specifically for American tastes, and was less expensive than most European porcelain.

Another Nippon decorating technique is something called moriage ware.
