Offered by E. Pranger Oriental Art




'Blanc de Chine' was made at the kilns of Dehua in Fujian and is characterised by a rich, glossy transparent glaze, pooling in recesses and without crackle. It is perfectly fused with a body of very pure white porcelain containing almost no iron. The colour of the glaze itself can range from an ivory or creamy-white to a slightly bluish- or greyish-white. 'Blanc de Chine' pieces have no painted decoration - hence the name - and derive their effect from the combination of shape and glaze.
