- Additional Notes: Brightly painted kakiemon porcelains were produced from the 17th century and proved very popular in Europe. The shapes of vessels inspired copies at distinguished factories like Meissen, where examples of saké flasks were made in red stoneware. The colourful, enamel painted decoration also inspired imitation, including at the Bow and Chelsea porcelain factories in the 18th century.
