China Decorating: In the late 1880's through the 1940's, a very popular amateur hobby or craft was in vogue known as "china decorating". The items used for decorating originated as porcelain blanks (white porcelain) often manufactured in Europe (France, Bavaria, Austro-Hungarian Empire) and imported into the US and Canada for women and men to decorate as part of this craft. In addition, the Ceramic Art Company, Lenox Belleek and Willets Belleek companies from New Jersey also sold blank porcelain for china decorators.
