Description

Excerpt from Catalogue of Coloured Chinese Porcelain, Exhibited in 1896 They include plain white, which, when glazed and not meant to be decorated, is usually of an ivory tint with a soft satiny glaze, but the glaze is sometimes of a bluish or greenish-grey tint, and at others the pieces are covered with an almost pure white opaque enamel. In the' History of King-te-chin, different whites are described as, of the moon, of flour, and Of snow. Sometimes the paste is left unglazed, but of this class the Exhibition contains but one example, the beautiful little plaque, with landscape and figures in relief, belonging to Mr. Cock, which will be found in the small Case devoted to small pieces.
