Dehua Porcelain of Shan Tsai - Disciple of Guanyin - 10 l/2 " High

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 it 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 Shan Tsai. Shan Tsai is a disciple of Guanyin and often you can see Guanyin with two children at her side, Shan Tsai and Lung Nu. Lung Nu 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. Any questions please email me.
