The porcelains or china made by these kilns are exquisite and elegant, with a lot of varieties. Among them, the black vitreous enamel(also called Tamuka vitreous enamel)is the most famous. The leaves-design Tamuka vitreous enamel and paper-cutting –design Tamuka vitreous enamel enjoy high popularity both at home and abroad. The porcelains or china made by these kilns were sold to overseas and collected by museums and collectors of many countries.
