Blue and white porcelain-ware with a depiction of aBlue and white pottery (Chinese: 青花; pinyin: qīng-huā; literally: Blue flowers) covers a wide range of white pottery and porcelain decorated under the glaze with a blue pigment, generally cobalt oxide. The decoration is commonly applied by han originally by brush painting, but nowadays by stencilling or by transfer-printing, though other methods of application have also been used.

Fakes and reproductions

Chinese potters have a long tradition of borrowing design and decorative features from earlier wares. Whilst ceramics with features thus borrowed might sometimes pose problems of provenance, they would not generally be regarded as either reproductions or fakes. However, fakes and reproductions have also been made at many times during the long history of Chinese ceramics and continue to be made today in ever-increasing numbers.
