Chinese Blanc De Chine Porcelain Elder, Holding a Dragon Staff & Cup.
Chinese Blanc De Chine Porcelain Elder Figure, Holding a Dragon Headed Staff with One Hand, and a Cup In The Other.
Blanc de Chine porcelain was made in the province of Fujian in Dehua. This area almost never marked their porcelain as it speaks for itself. Beginning in the mid-thirteenth century, the kilns of Dehua, capital of the Fujian Province in southeast China, began producing brilliant white porcelain pieces, the likes of which had never been seen before. These pieces were originally crafted with only domestic markets in mind, for use as cooking and serving ware, or for decorative or religious purposes. But as Chinese artefacts made their way around the world, a significant market for these porcelains blossomed in Europe, where they were prized for their refinement of form and beauty of glaze.
