History

Produced in the 18th century, Chinese export porcelain was made with the same technical virtuosity as Chinese Imperial porcelain but designed to Western tastes. Its continued appeal today is a testament to the work of Chinese artisans and Western importers who, without common language or culture together, promoted the spread of these wares.
