Parian Ware - (Porcelain)

Parian Ware - (Porcelain) Unglazed, vitrified porcelain, with a smooth Stone-like marble feel. The name is derived from antique marble found on Paros Island in Greece. It was  first made by Copeland about 1842 and later by Minton, and also at Belleek. Busts and figures are notable. Parian was an improvement on Derby biscuit porcelain.
