An introduction to Ming blue-and-white porcelain

In this video, British Museum curator Jessica Harrison-Hall introduces us to the aesthetic features and history of Ming Dynasty porcelain artefacts.

The porcelain of China’s Ming Dynasty (1368-1644 CE) is justifiably famous for its fine ceramics – in particular the cobalt blue-and-white porcelain produced in such towns as Jingdezhen in Jiangxi province.

Still highly prized by collectors today, Ming porcelain was to have a major influence on the ceramics of many other countries, in turn, from Japan to Britain.
