The original source of the decoy in America to be sure is founded on early American heritage, however, not with the early colonists as may very well be realistically presumed. Instead it pre-dates the actual American pioneer by no less than 1,000, maybe 2,000 years.

The Northwood Glass Company was founded by English-born Harry Northwood, son of a talented glass manufacturer.

Harry left England to work in America in 1880, when he was twenty years old, and founded his own factory in 1887 in Ohio, before eventually moving to Wheeling, West Virginia. Many people believe that it was Harry who brought the technique of iridizations to the USA, having seen it at his father’s glassworks.

When Japan sent its own delegation to the United States, an opportunistic young man named Baron Ichizaemon Morimura was among the representatives. He quickly discovered the popularity of Japanese china among American consumers.

In 1876 he established his own porcelain trading company, with offices in both New York and Tokyo. While the new company, Morimura Brothers, initially focused solely on exporting china already being manufactured in Japan, eventually Morimura became interested in producing his own china. In 1904, he built this factory in a little village named Noritake.

Nippon is not a manufacturer’s name but a country of origin. Nippon sounds like “Neehon” in Japanese, “Land of the Rising Sun.” The word porcelain is a derivative from the Italian word, “porcellana”, meaning cowry shell.

The days of the Nantucket Lightships and the baskets their crews produced began deep in America’s 19th century. Some accounts suggest the lightship service, providing a floating lighthouse for traveling whaling ships, began as early as the 1820s.
