Welcome to the daily series “In Search Of,” where we look high and low on Krrb for one-of-a-kind items that we must have now! Today, it’s all about “Porcelain” and we’ve got loads of it.

Porcelain, or fine china, is made from clay heated at a high temperature. Strong and translucent, porcelain’s name comes from the old Italian word for a shell. Now, we see it in dishes, art and housewares in markets and on Krrb. Here are a few of our favorite porcelain finds.
