Biscuit is a French term meaning raw porcelain, both soft and hard paste; that is, left without covering it with paint (feldspar powder, applied before the paint). The biscuit has the appearance of a solid and opaque white color similar to marble and was widely used, starting from the mid-eighteenth century, in various European manufacturers, to produce various ornamental objects. But the biscuit turned out to be particularly suitable for making statuettes and small busts, often in reduced imitation of famous sculptures of the classical era
