Coloring of Maltese

Has anyone ever seen or heard of an Ivory maltese? Rather than stark white it is more of a creamy white color (ivory). Just wondered about the rareness of such a creature and if that is a sign of defect. I have an ivory maltese. She is quite beautiful and looks just like our white maltese in all aspects other than her coloring. I guess i just want to know what that says about her breeding , etc.
