Fine China and New Jersey

Was China the fancy plate or China the country named first? Which was named after each other?

I wonder if there were other failed cutlery-country naming relationships, such as fine Sri Lanka named after the forks and fine New Jersey named after the gravy boat.

Because…you know…it’s New Jersey.
