“Porcelain is a fictile material intermediate between glass and pottery, being formed of two substances, fusible and infusible, the latter enabling it to withsantd the heat necessary to vitrify the former, thus producing its peculiar semi-translucency. The infusible material is alumina, called kaolin; the fusible substance is felspar, and is called pe-tun-tse, both Chinese terms. Large quantities of porcelain are produced in New Jersy, Ohio, and other states, while European porcelain, and Chinese and Japanese ware, are famous."—(Charles Leonard-Stuart, 1911)
