The Kangxi period (1662-1722) was one of the most productive period of Chinese ceramics. Blue and White glazed porcelain is probably the most immediately recognisable art production which flourished under this period. Blue-and-white porcelain was particularly admired by the Imperial court, and it was produced for both domestic use and for export outside China. Numerous examples of Kangxi porcelain have been recovered in many European collections, testifying the great popularity held by Chinese Blue and White porcelain. Both imperial and non-imperial wares display high quality of material, craftsmanship, design, painting quality and aesthetic appeal.
