Since time immemorial, porcelain has expressed perfection, mastery, history and tradition, and especially timeless feelings.
It was first produced by the Chinese during the Tang Dynasty. Later on, when techniques improved, the Song Imperial Dynasty decided to set up royal factories to produce it.
However, the composition of porcelain long remained a mystery, which is one of the reasons why it was said to possess magical powers; indeed, because of its compactness, it prevents the growth of bacteria. It was even called “white gold” and became a very precious product that was highly sought after.
Porcelain first appeared in Europe in the XIII Century, thanks to Marco Polo. Upon his return from a long sojourn in Beijing during the Yuan Dynasty, he imported from China a type of proto-porcelain in the form of hard ceramic with a white or brown enamel finish.
