Souvenir (Porcelains)

Blue and White Porcelain

The Chinese are familiar with this kind of porcelain, as it is highlighted in a popular song. The colors of blue and white porcelain are mainly blue and white, and the white is outstanding and refined. Once, when centuries-old blue and white porcelain pieces were unearthed, they had retained their bright color. Blue and white porcelain is very popular in China.

Eggshell Porcelain

Eggshell porcelain got its name from its thin, colorful, and transparent appearance, and it has been that way since the North Song Dynasty. During different times, this thin and transparent porcelain has always been the shining star among ceramics. Significant eggshell porcelain products are vases, tableware, and other pieces.
