Located at the northwest of Jianguomen Bridge, Dehua Porcelain Outlet specializes in both the famous white and red porcelain made in Dehua County, Fujian Province. Outside the shop there¡¯s a red sign that reads ¡°China White¡±, ¡°China¡± here means porcelain. Dehua, Jingdezhen of Jiangxi Province and Liling of Hunan Province ranks the three biggest capitals of Porcelain in China. Dehua is famous for its time-honored white porcelain and modern unique red porcelain.

 

Dehua white porcelain originated in the Song Dynasty (A.D. 960~1279). It has made tremendous strides ever since the Ming Dynasty (A.D. 1368~1644). It features white color, semi-transparency and shining glaze. So the white porcelain has earned the names of China White, Ivory White or Cream White. In the shop, a lot of white porcelain works are on display, for instance, the statue of Guanyin (the Goddess of Mercy). The most impressive one is entitled ¡°the Soul of Chrysanthemum¡±. Its pendant filaments are so slight that it has to be kept from touching in a showcase.

 

Dehua red porcelain is a modern outcome through generations¡¯ effort. In traditional Chinese culture, red color represents happiness, auspiciousness and prosperity. Many red porcelain wares have been sent to foreign dignitaries as national treasures. These exhibits will bring you strong visual impact.

 

Both Dehua white and red porcelain are of great value. Their prices start from several thousand yuan. In addition, the shop also carries porcelain wares made in Dehua for daily use, including tea sets, coffee cups & saucers, salt & pepper shakers, bowls & plates. Price for a set of exquisite tea sets including one tea pot and six tea cups is RMB 300.
