After the fall of the Qing dynasty there followed a period of great unrest in China, with revolts and political upheavals throughout the country. In spite of this turmoil, however, the porcelain industry in the Jiangxi province flourished, and a number of privately-operated kilns began producing high-quality porcelain in Jingdezhen. These factories produced not only wares copying Kangxi, Yongzheng and Qianlong-era porcelains, but there was also a revival in quality led by a number of schools and artists, all producing items with delicate painted decorations, with the pieces often signed.

Buyers are becoming increasingly drawn to Republic period and later 20th century porcelain pieces, attracted to the high-quality snow-white porcelain and skilful decoration. Pieces by prominent artists are very desirable, and as a result can fetch high prices at auction.
