....than a piece of handpainted porcelain. A gift that can be passed down for generations. Each piece of porcelain is painted several times to build up the colors and fired in between each painting in a kiln from 3 or more times. Since the paint is fired in a kiln it is dishwasher and microwave safe. Unless of course there is a luster or gold on it. Then you should hand wash to protect the luster or gold.
Here's a lovely piece. Handpainted cottage style porcelain cabbage rose box. Size 4 inches round. Side of the box has been tamped in pink the top has 2 beautiful yellow/pink roses with teal blue leaves.
