Because they originated from China. But do you still call it a 'chinaware' even if it's made in Korea? I was a bit confused there for a moment...hahahahahahah! What about stuff from errrrm...Zimbabwe for instance...do we call it Zimbabwe-ware? That's just odd, right? :) Arrrrrrrgh!
Anywaaaaaaaaaaaaay, I got these really lovely 'chinas' from a local Korean thrift shop this afternoon...and guess for how much?? Fifty pesos only! for BOTH! :)) A little more than a dollar I guess and it absolutely made my day. Yaaaaaay! I'll use this for my loose change and keys and rings and what not!
