About

The word 'celadon', still in popular usage, was introduced by a 19th-century French collector after a character in a 17th-century French play whose costume was a similar green in colour. The word does not occur in Chinese scholarship, where 'greenwares' is the preferred term.

The Asian Collections, AGNSW, 2003, pg.108.
