    This very fine porcelain vase appears to be from the 60's - 70's
    It is so light and translucent. Maybe eggshell type of porcelain.
    I can't work out the story behind the lady with the fan.
    I just love it though
    Any help deciphering the story would be great
    Jingdezhen, the ‘city of all day thunder and lightning,’ is located in the northeastern part of Jiangxi province and is known as the porcelain centre of the world. Some historians believe that ceramics production may have started there in the Han dynasty (206 BC.–AD. 220) with kilns spread along the Chang River, south and southeast of the town.(1) The town was then called Xinping Town or Changnan for its location to the south (nan) of the Chang River. Pottery clay was in ample supply all around the town. More specifically, the Gaoling mountain, 40 kilometers to the northeast, is one of the few areas in China which provided pure kaolin, one of the essential ingredients for porcelain. Other nearby areas such as Nankang, Sanbaopeng, Dongliu and Liujiawan provided the other ingredient; the so-called ‘China stone.’
