Ivory white is a color name of porcelain glaze, which has earned the name for its ivory-like texture. The glaze contains the oxide of Titanium, so it looks slight yellowish white, but with shiny bright appearance. Under the sunlight, we can see pink or milky looming inside the glaze. Thus, it is also called lard white (猪油白), or ivory white. In Europe, this kind of glazing color is also called velvet white or Chinese white.
