Strictly speaking Seto ware is stoneware pottery produced in and around Seto in Aichi Prefecture in Japan and it was the location of one of the Six Ancient Kilns of Japan. This type of ware was made from 12th/13th century and continues to be made up to this day.

The porcelain plate is factory made from the Seto area but is nothing like traditional Seto pottery and indeed setomono is used as a generic term for factory produced pottery in Japan.

The teabowl below is one of the typical styles of Seto-yaki and is known as Ki-Seto (yellow Seto). It was made by Sho Kato (1927 - 2001), who was an Intangible Cultural Property of Aichi Prefecture.

Indeed. This is Seto Sei from the much later Meiji period, made in the Seto area of Japan.
