Japanning is a type of finish that originated as a European imitation of Asian lacquerwork. It was first used on furniture, but was later much used on small items in metal. Originating in India, China and Japan as a decorative coating for pottery, it made its way into Europe by the 17th century. Ironware was japanned black, for decorative reasons. It was also used to render metal products rustproof.
