The story behind it:
Green and white porcelain is considered to be one of the outstanding achievements of porcelain production in Jingdezhen, the porcelain capital of China. In contrast to the pure white glaze, the green-white glaze shows a jade-like, light green colour after burning. To achieve this, a transparent iron and wood ash-based glaze is applied to a light gray-white biscuit. The decisive factor is the iron content: if this is increased, green-white becomes a green colour.
