|Type Name:||PORCELAIN, DEHUA WHITE|
White, highly vitreous paste that is slightly thicker and glassier than most other porcelain types.
Covered in a creamy, translucent, white or light cream-colored feldspathic glaze, with no painted decoration.
Decoration consists of molded applied elements, that usually consist of floral motifs, but which may also include animals.
Texture can vary from a lardlike, almost greasy feel to a smooth, almost blemish-less ware.
|Comments:||This ware is also known as "Blanc de Chine", and is most commonly used for small libation cups and figurines.|
