Additional Notes:
Dutch ..... zeer dun en fijn porselein 
Spanish ..... Se refiere a un tipo de porcelana fabricada utilizando una proporción relativamente alta de arcilla en comparación a la piedra de China, producida habitualmente en China o Europa. Se caracteriza por ser extremadamente delgada y fina, con paredes incluso translúcidas, y tiene en general color blanco, asemejándose por lo tanto a la cáscara de un huevo de ave. Se distingue de la "cáscara de huevo (estilo de cerámica)", muy anterior, que es un estilo específico de cerámica minoica y que no es porcelana.
