Dingyao ware originated from Hebei province and is one of the five most prestigious porcelain varieties in China. It is known for its ivory-white and creamy-white color as well as delicately designed carved decoration. It was first created in the Tang Dynasty (AD 618-907) and flourished in the Song Dynasty (AD 960-1279).
