The conquering of China by the Mongols was to have a very important and lasting influence on China's ceramic production, Though the Mongols were in power for a little less than a century, it was a period of relative peace, prosperity and stability. Most important, the reopening up of major trade routes, both overland and by sea, meant that this was a period which overseas trade flourished, especially with regard to the ceramic industry. Ceramics, which were first produced in large quantities during the Yuan dynasty (1279-1368), were exported throughout the world, and were to influence ceramic production in many countries, particularly the Near East and Europe. In fact the production of ceramics in these countries was stimulated by their wish to reproduce ware from China. It was through these trades that cultural and artistic exchanges occurred between the Near East or Europe and China, which had a great influence on the development of Chinese blue and white porcelain.
