HARBIN, July 13 (Xinhua) — An exhibition of Dehua porcelain opened to the public in northeast China’s Heilongjiang Province Friday.
The exhibition, held by the Museum of Heilongjiang Province and Fujian Folk Museum, displays nearly 100 items of Dehua porcelain.
The exhibition is divided into four parts: the beginning and development of Dehua porcelain, the prosperous period in the Ming and Qing Dynasties (1368-1911), the kiln of Dehua in the Qing Dynasty (1644-1911) and after the founding of the People’s Republic of China.
Dehua porcelain is a type of white Chinese porcelain made in Dehua County in east China’s Fujian Province. Dehua, together with Jingdezhen in east China’s Jiangxi Province and Liling in central China’s Hunan Province, are dubbed China’s ancient porcelain capitals.
The exhibition will last for a month.
