    antique ceramics: parian ware

    Parian is a type of bisque porcelain. It was named after Paros, a Greek island renowned for its fine-textured, white marble of the same name. Invented by Thomas Battam, Parian was essentially designed as imitation carved marble, with the great advantage that it was prepared in a liquid form and cast in a mould, enabling mass production.
