During the end of Qing Dynasty and early "Republic of China" ROC era, the demand of porcelain products from the Western Countries are extremely high. Many master potters have initiated the establishment of porcelain companies. Fujian Baohua Porcelain Company, Pingxiang Porcelain Company, Hunan Porcelain Company, Jiangxi Porcelain Company and Sichuan Porcelain Company, are among the biggest which started the era of porcelain production in China.

"You Shang Cai" or Over-Glaze Decoration Painting Technique
This technique has been available since "Tang Dynasty". It is used to give the normal blue white porcelain some lively color. Usually "You Shang Cai" is painted on the surface of the porcelain after "You Xia Cai" or "Under-Glaze Decoration Painting Technique" process and then burn again in a lower temperature of 600℃ to 800℃. Unfortunately the paint will fade if being scrub hard enough or after sometime of use.
