'Parian' is the name now used for a form of porcelain developed in England in the early 1840s. The porcelain body was made to have a resemblance to marble, and when first introduced it was heralded as an affordable way for people to bring into their homes smaller scale copies of the large marble statues and busts found in Stately Homes.
