Porcelain

Reuzeit Emporium has an outstanding collection of antique porcelain shoes, vases, toothpick holders and souvenir pieces.
 
Porcelain is a vitrified pottery with a white, fine-grained body that is usually translucent. It was first made in China during the Tang dynasty (618–907) and in its advanced form during the Yuan dynasty (1279–1368). The three main types are true (or hard-paste) porcelain, artificial (or soft-paste) porcelain, and bone china. Attempts by medieval European potters to imitate true porcelain led to the discovery of soft-paste porcelain, which can be cut with a file. The secret of true porcelain was discovered c. 1707 in Saxony. Standard English bone china was produced c. 1800 when Josiah Spode II (1754–1827) added calcined bones to the hard-paste porcelain formula. Hard-paste porcelain, though strong, chips more readily than bone china. A few vintage pieces of porcelain or a small collection of shoes, boots, plates or cups  that have had a previous life make any room so much richer.
