In reviewing the branches of ceramics, the geographical arrangement used by other writers has given place to the natural or technical classification, to permit the grouping together of similar wares of all countries and times, whereby pottery, or opaque ware, is classified according to glaze, its most distinctive feature, and porcelain, or translucent ware, is grouped according to body, or paste. Soft porcelain may be divided into two groups: a. Artificial soft paste (containing various compositions, as in the fritted porcelain of Sevres and the other early French manufactories). b. Natural soft paste (containing china clays as a basis, usually combined with calcined bone, as in English porcelain). In preparing the material for Artificial Soft Paste Porcelain, the author has consulted the most recent and reliable authorities on the subject, but he is particularly indebted, for many of the facts presented, to A History and Description of French Porcelain, by E. S. Auscher- English Porcelain, by William Burton- Old English Porcelain by M. L. Solon- Catalogue of the Collection of Worcester Porcelain in the Royal Porcelain Works' Museum, by R. W. Binns, F.S. A. The Soft Porcelain of Sevres, With an Historical Introduction, by Edouard Gamier (London, 1892), and Histoire des Manufactures Francaises de Porcelaine, by the Count de Chavagnac and the Marquis de Grollier.
