Like the parian pieces discussed in another section of this website, the porcelain and majolica groups were made in England, most likely by the same companies that made the parians. Majolica is a kind of earthenware made in imitation of Italian maiolica, especially in England during the 19th century. It is prepared by tin-glazing parian and firing it a second time. After the first firing, the parian is dipped into a bath of fast drying liquid glaze. When dry, the glazed piece is hand painted. A final firing will make the glaze interact with the metal oxides used in the paint to create deep and brilliant translucent colors specific to majolica.
The pieces that have been found in porcelain and majolica include "Taking the Oath and Drawing Rations", "One More Shot" and "The Wounded Scout". The porcelain pieces were primarily a solid off-white color, but frequently they have gold or other colored accents on the bases and skin areas. The majolica pieces were produced in one primary color, such as red, green, beige or brown to replicate a bronze appearance. Pieces done with the beige appearance are frequently referred to as "creamware."
The pictures below show a sampling of but some of the many various porcelain and majolica pieces found.
