The art of making porcelain was a closely guarded secret in China for centuries while European potters tried to discover the technique. True porcelain is very hard and translucent, qualities which allow a skilled craftsman to fashion wares of infinite delicacy. Various attempts were made to imitate it, but it was not until the early 18th century that after years of research the first European porcelain was made at Meissen, near Dresden. This is a history of the years to come, with 60 full-color plates.
