1. Gansu, Qinghai, Ningxia and Xinjiang Areas
Gansu, Qinghai, Ningxia, and Xinjiang are all located in the northwest part of China. Duo to geographical limitations, ceramic manufacture in these areas is rather undeveloped in comparison with the inland China. The earlist proto-porcelains found in these areas can be dated to the eras contemporaneous with the Western Zhou period, as evidenced by two finds, a proto-porcelain zun and jar from the burial at Baicaopo in Lingtai, Gansu.
2. Yunnan and Guizhou Areas
Production of pottery and glazed pottery are known early in Yunnan. Porcelains do not appear until the late Tang and early Song periods, namely during the late Nanzhao kingdom through early Dali state periods. The feature of Yunnan blue-and-white porcelain production concerns religious belief and traditional religious imagery. Many images reflect either Buddist or Daoist religious themes.
The earliest porcelain-type ceramics excavated in Guizhou come from tombs dated to the Wei-Jin and Southern and Northern Dynasties periods. Over 40 greenwares, with gray-white clay bodies and yellowish green glazes have been unearthed.
3. The Tibet Autonomous Region
From the beginning of the 7th century on, Tibet continued cultural and commercial interchanges with the central government. The Tibet government preserves an intimate interaction with the central government of China, especially during the Ming and Qing dynasties. As the relationship between the Central Chinese government and Tibetan government grows strong, the Ming and Qing imperial house blessed Tibet with gifts. Since these gifts were offered to the elite, most are imperial kiln products for temple use with a strong Tibetan flavor. A large number are traditional Tibetan vessel shapes and décor, of exquisite beauty and design, and brought to Tibet as gifts from over a long period of time by the imperial house of Ming and Qing dynasties. For this reason, such porcelains are included in this catalogue although they are not products of Tibet and few are from archaeological excavations.
