Narumi China began as Imperial Seito in 1911. It built its first factory in Narumi, Nagoya in 1938. In 1946 it began making western tableware. The Narumi China  Corporation was established in 1950. The first bone china was exported to the USA in 1965.
*See Meito. Narumi acquired Meito in the 1940's.
