Porcelain is a type of ceramic material that is made from a mixture of kaolin, feldspar, and quartz. The material is fired at a high temperature, resulting in a strong and translucent product. This type of ceramic has been used for centuries to make a variety of objects, including pottery, dishes, figurines, and statues.
One of the most famous producers of European porcelain is the Meissen factory in Germany. Established in 1710, Meissen has long been known for its exquisite figurines, plates, and other objects. In addition, the company is credited with the invention of hard-paste porcelain, considered the first true porcelain.
Other notable European porcelain manufacturers include Sèvres in France, KPM in Germany, and Worcester in England. All of these companies produce high-quality pieces that are often decorated with opulent designs and intricate paintings, helping to fetch a higher value when you’re ready to sell porcelain and ceramics as part of a collection, lot, or estate.
Grayson Perry, Tamsin van Essen, and Sookyoung Yee are a few of the other prominent names in porcelain and ceramic figurines, dishware, and vases. Adorned with meticulous details, high-end finishes, and unique artistic perspectives, each piece of vintage porcelain or ceramic has a marvelous story that gives insight into different times, places, and cultures.
