Moriage is a style of decoration used by porcelain manufacturers during the late 1800s/early 1900s. It is the art of laying "beads" of porcelain on the item prior to firing in the kiln. Most typically it was decorated later in gold. Use caution when purchasing Moriage decorated items as the beads have a tendency to be broken off.
