Blue and white porcelain is relatively common in the Peranakan community. They were produced in large quantities for the export market although not highly sought after by collectors of Peranakan porcelain, who do not view them as unique to the Peranakan community. This type of porcelain was generally used by the Peranakan communities of Singapore and Malacca for ancestral worship and for daily use. It is quite difficult today to find a complete set in perfect condition as most were used and divided up when ancestral houses were dismantled.
