This shard was previously part of a Dehua porcelain ware. It has faint moulded lines on its surface and has a bluish tinge in its white glaze, characteristic of later Dehua ware. Dehua porcelain is better known in the West as blanc-de-chine porcelain, which rose to international significance around the 17th century. Its popularity at home and abroad continued and the kilns at Dehua remain prolific to this day.
