How do we identify quality pottery and porcelain?
Porcelain was first produced by Chinese over 1000 years ago. Quality porcelain has certain apparent identifiers. For one, whether it is glazed or unglazed, it will always be watertight, which means that it will not be porous and absorb water. It is also mostly white or creamy but can be painted on the outside for beautification. It is also translucent and allows at least some light to pass through it.
Quality porcelain is also incredibly hard to scratch and fired at an exorbitantly high temperature of around 1400 °C. For both pottery as well as porcelain antiques an important identity symbol is also the mark made by the potter at the bottom or back of the piece which reveals the origin location of the article, the name of the potter who crafted it and the artist who beautified it. In case of the absence of the mark, the unfinished base of pottery can be examined for clues about its place of origin.
