Porcelain

The earliest evidence of porcelain in China dates to the Shang dynasty (16th - 11th century BC). The distinctive styles of early porcelain rose from royal commissions for the palace and the development of Zhejiang province as the centre for porcelain in China. By the Han dynasty, white porcelain was well developed and continued to grow as collectables. By the Yuan Dynasty (1271 - 1368), the ‘Qinghua Ci’, blue and white porcelain had become mainstream and recognised as distinctly Chinese. Today white porcelain or ‘china’ features as an everyday product. Some items though are still quite collectable and recognised for their ornamental and aesthetic nature. Such is the range of Chaoan porcelain we bring to you. The elephant features prominently in our current range of 21 pieces. Collect them for their aesthetics or put them to practical use. All of our elephants have their trunk up to keep in the luck. Great Feng Shui. Manufactured is probably not the right term for these items as the process is very much a hand craft. Each piece will be ever so slightly different to the next and some carry small ‘character marks’ that occur along the way.
