In the realm of exquisite porcelain, its origins and significant production hub lie in the city of Jingdezhen, Jiangxi Province, which has been a renowned center for ceramic production for the Chinese imperial court. The tradition of crafting porcelain wares dates back to the 14th century, evolving into a thriving industry that continues to flourish today. Exporting to various capitals abroad began around the 16th century, earning Jingdezhen the esteemed title of “The Porcelain Capital of China”, a testament to its enduring legacy as the nation’s foremost hub of ceramic artistry.
