The word "china" on the maker stamp implies the material, being porcelain.
Nippon is the country of origin stamp, being the Japanese word for Japan.
The company name who made and exported the set is actually Te-Oh, (not E-OH) which is the full name of the maker, not initials.
These were fully manufactured in Japan, and they were not blanks from China that were then decorated in Japan.
