Blanc de chine porcelain can have different color glazes. It can have have a slightly brownish tinge, it can have a creamy appearance and third is can have a bluish white appearance. And oddly enough not all blanc de chine are various shades of white. Glaze colors can include aubergine, green and a reddish brown color. In general, the cold white color of blanc de chine is from the late 18th century or later (late 1700 or later). The creamy, ivory, pinkish pieces are usually made before the late 1700's. Also, recently it has been found that blanc de chine porcelain was painted with enamel colors. Very early Dehua porcelain had a green glaze. It can be said then that blanc de chine porcelain is a porcelain manufactured in Dehua, China. It is said that the best quality pieces have a slightly brownish tinge on their surface
For sale is a 10 l/2 inch tall Dehua porcelain of Lung Nu (grand daughter of the Dragon King.) Lung Nu is the keeper of the pearl of light and is a disciple of Guanyin and often you can see Guanyin with two children at her side, Shan Tsai and Lung Nu. Shan Tsai will be listed separately.
This item is heavy potted, has a ivory leaning to brown glaze. I do not know the exact age of this item, but I believe they are from the 20th century. I can tell you that this porcelain has the Dehua seal and also a square seal. This item is in the style of the late Ming and early Quin era when figures were not as elaborately fussy as found in the 19th century (1800).
