An ongoing exhibition at the Shanghai History Museum presented hundreds of Chinese and Western porcelains, giving visitors an insight into historical cultural exchange between the East and West.

Visitors will get a chance to appreciate porcelain from two capitals of the industry: Jingdezhen in China's Jiangxi province and Meissen in Germany.

The exhibits briefly outline the developmental history of porcelain, focusing on the influence of China's exported porcelain on Western social customs and lifestyle, as well as integration and innovation in cultural shock.

The exhibition will end on Nov 3.
