Although some rare pieces of Ming dynasty (1368-1644) date survive, the Shiwan kilns flourished in the Qing era and particularly in the 18th and 19th centuries and Republican Period. Then the kilns flourished and were exporting to Southeast Asia, Europe and North America. Today, contemporary products from Shiwan are sold within China in Guangzhou, Hong Kong, and Macau. These are also bought by many within overseas Chinese communities in Southeast Asia, Europe and North America.
