Classic & Vintage Porcelain

Invented in China, porcelain first appeared in the Shang Dynasty (1600 - 1046 BC) and was used to produce many things from storage vessels to decorative statues.  The highest grade Chinese porcelain is still produced today in Jingdezhen, Quanzhau and Foshan.  Blue and white porcelain, or ‘Qinghua', is perhaps the most famous Chinese porcelain and our reproduction vintage ginger jars are produced, hand-painted and glazed for us in Jingdezhen.  If you are wondering where to buy vintage oriental porcelain, there could be no better source than the birthplace of China’s ‘white gold’.
