Get to know realdarteporcelains

RealD'arte is a Portuguese company founded in 1993 dedicated to the production of fine porcelain products, but not just high quality in hand-painted porcelain, but to works of art!

Acquiring a piece of porcelain from RealD'arte constitutes an act which reflects a cultural understanding and an appreciation of what is commonly known as "good taste". Each piece exemplifies the highest quality in materials an craftsmanship.

To this end, we use only Limoges (France) porcelain body which utilizes Kaolin from New Zealand. (The basic ingredients for porcelain are white ball clay, quartz, feldspar and Kaolin.) We then fire each piece at 1380 degrees C to transform these basic ingredients into a pure white, translucent piece that reflects the best quality porcelain available in the world today.

Porcelain pieces from RealD'arte distinguish themselves for other ceramic products by their transparency, resistance, complete lack of porosity and that pure, clear sound that comes from nothing but the highest quality porcelain when flicked by a finger.

In the following pages you will see both classical and modern shapes produced by ReadD"arte that grace the homes of many throughout Europe and America.
