The chaos that marked the transition from the Ming to the Qing dynasty in the mid-seventeenth century spurred European demand for Japanese porcelains, which began to be exported in significant numbers. As production resumed in China, Chinese potters sometimes re-created the Japanese styles—characterized by the dense pattering on the rim—that the European markets desired.
