A 19th century Chinese Plate


Blue and white porcelain is contrived using the color blue, usually from cobalt oxide, to create designs on shaped clean white clay that is then covered in a layer of transparent glaze and baked in a kiln at high temperatures.  

During the Ming (1368-1644) and Qing (1644-1911) dynasties, the blue and white ware industry became increasingly important because at this time, blue and white porcelain was not only known within the borders of China, it was welcomed in the international trade market.
