Orange Tongzhi – (Porcelain Chinese)

Orange Tongzhi – (Porcelain Chinese) Orange colored glaze used on porcelain. Although very little porcelain was actually made in Jingdezhen during the Tongzhi period (1861-1875), the reason being the Taiping rebellion (1851-64) which devastated the city and the porcelain industry. The Imperial factory was sacked in 1855 and did not reopen until 1874, nineteen years later.
