About Porcelain

Porcelain is a comparatively newer development compared to ceramic. The process was first mastered in China in the 1300s. 

Our Porcelain Urns have been expertly handcrafted in Portugal. They each have symbolic meanings behind them and have been designed to be presented within your home to look like a subtle decorative piece as well as being a touching tribute to your angel.

The porcelain urn will not deteriorate over time. This will ensure a secure vessel for your loved one's final resting place.
