Jingdezhen. Porcelain capital of the world

In this exhibition, more than 120 objects will be on display from Jingdezhen, the Chinese city to which Delft owes its successful Delft Blue industry and where porcelain of the highest quality has been produced since the 6th century. The museum will take you on a journey through the turbulent history of China and of Jingdezhen, the porcelain capital of the world, where porcelain production has never stopped, neither in times of great flourishing nor of decline. Discover the scope of Jingdezhen's influence on the porcelain industry worldwide. From the precious, hand-painted porcelain, made at the request of emperors, to beautiful ornamental and practical objects for ordinary people.
