Blanc de Chine (French for "White from China") is the traditional European term for a type of white Chinese porcelain, made at Dehua in the Fujian province, otherwise known as Dehua porcelain or similar terms. It has been produced from the Ming Dynasty (1368–1644) to the present day. Large quantities arrived in Europe as Chinese Export Porcelain in the early 18th century and it was copied at Meissen and elsewhere. It was also exported to Japan in large quantities. This is a nicely done rendition of a working man carrying a yoke so he can carry two heavy loads. He has an interesting staff with a clubbed bottom.
Size: 10 inches tall.
Condition: Very Good to Excellent. Slight wear on the bottom edge of the base.
