White Clay Vase



Height: approx. 19cm | Width: approx. 10cm | Condition: Mint


White Clay Vase with intricate carving of Dragon. This piece is made from white clay and believed to be made during the late Qing period [1875-1916]. In the late Shang dynasty, the emergence of white pottery with engravings marked a new achievement in Chinese pottery. Due to the hardness, lustration and fine craftsmanship, white pottery was used exclusively by the Chinese who owned slaves. During the later period of the Shang dynasty [1046BC], white pottery transitioned to become more refined and thus majority of the better white potteries came from this period.
