Dictionary

What does the word mean?

There are many special terms and words used within the world of porcelain, handicrafts and lighting. We have collected some of the words which our customers mostly have asked about and added a short description and/or explanation.

Porcelain / Collectibles

What is under glazing?
That a figurine or plate is made with under glazing means that the object has been glazed before the last burning. Under glazing is the most adopt method to glaze porcelain plates and figurines. Read more about under glazing.

What is over glazing?
If plates, dinnerware or figurines are decorated with over glazing, they have got an extra burning after the object was burned second time. With this technique the colours and decoration are even more clear. Read more about over glazing.

What is ceramics?
Ceramics is a broad concept and is the term of burned clay, which also include faience and stoneware. You can get more information of ceramics.

What is faience?
Faience is clay burned at 1100-1200 degrees. You can read much more about faience and see examples.

What is stoneware?
Stoneware is burned clay, which is more robust than porcelain and faience. Learn more about stoneware.

What is silk print?
Silk print is a special way to decorate porcelain which makes it possible to use many different colours. Please read more about silk print.

What is bisquit?
Bisquit is a sort of porcelain, burned at 950 degrees. Read more about bisquit.

What is a porcelain painting?
A porcelain painting looks like a normal painting with frame, but it is painted on porcelain so it has extremely clear colours.

What is an ornament?
An ornament is a small figurine or other decoration, which has a string so it can be hung up in the window, on the Christmas tree or the like. Small figurines with strings are also called figurine ornament. You can see examples of ornament and figurine ornament.

What is a butter board?
A butter board was originally intended for the bread while you butter a piece of bread. Today, porcelain butter boards are more used for decoration and some are manufactured with a hole in the top so they can hang on the wall. Others can be displayed in plate racks. See examples of butter boards

How do I see whether a figurine/plate is factory first or factory second?
If the factory has estimated that a figurine or plate should be factory second, it has been marked with a scratch through the factory mark on the back of the plate or under the bottom of the figurine. You can read much more about qualities here.

Lighting

What is a pendant?
A pendant is a hanging lamp. Most of our pendants are made by Le Klint in white plast in different shapes, or in glass made by Holmegaard. See an example of a pendant.

What is a reces ring?
Some lamps are mounted with a socket without socket rings. Then the socket can be separated in the middle where you can fix the lamp. Most of the lampshades with fixed stand inside the lampshade are made to sockets with socket rings which means that the diameter of the lampshade stand is too big for the socket with reces. See how a recessring looks.

What is a fixed stand in a lampshade?
If a lampeshade is mounted with a fixed stand, the stand, and with it the lampshade, is fixed directly on the socket of the lamp. This means that the height of the lampshade only can be adjusted with the few centimetres that the socket rings can be adjusted up and down on the socket.

What is a lampshade rack?
A lampshades rack is placed on the lamp socket and then you place the lampshade on the rack. A lampshade rack can be adjusted in height, which makes it easier to find the correct height of the lampshade. A lampshade rack can be adjusted approximately 9 centimetre. In the top of the rack is a round ring with an inside diameter of app. 9 cm and an outside diameter of app. 11 cm. The lampshade rest on this ring. 

If you find a special word or expression that you do not understand, we would like to hear from you. Please write down the word for us and where you have read it (perhaps including a screen shot, if possible) and forward it to info@dph-trading.dk

Alle ordre over kr. 1.000,- leveres fragtfrit i Danmark. 

Fragtfri betyder at vi betaler for forsendelsen af din ordre, dvs. der bliver ikke tillagt fragt eller ekspeditionsgebyr til de viste priser, hvis du blot bestiller for over kr. 1.000,- 

Du kan altid se det samlede beløb for de varer du ligger i indkøbskurven incl. eventuel fragt -  inden du gennemfører dit køb.

Vi sender primært med Post Danmark eller GLS i Danmark, til udlandet bruger vi oftest FedEx, dog afhængigt af hvilke varer du bestiller mv.  

Den fragtpris som vises i indkøbskurven beregnes automatisk ud antallet af varer, deres mål og vægt, leveringsland og leveringsmåde. (Bemærk vi leverer ikke fragtfrit til udlandet). 

 

Ekstra tunge varer leveres ikke fragtfrit

Hvis du bestiller møbler, eller andre meget store eller tunge varer, som ikke kan sendes med posten eller GLS, leveres disse ikke fragtfrit. 

Når en vare har     Ekstra fragt    symbolet,  er det fordi varen er af betydelig

størrelse og/eller vægt. På disse varer kan vi ikke tilbyde at levere fragtfrit ved køb over 1000 kr.

Typisk er det varer som møbler, større bronze figurer, kæmpe store vaser, kæmpe store lamper,
der ikke leveres fragtfrit.

Sådanne varer kan ikke købes online før DPH har udregnet en fragtpris. - Dette gøres ved at lægge
varen i kurven, og sende kurvens indhold som en forespørgsel til DPH.

NB. Når der er tale om møbler og andre store ting, kan det ofte være en god ide, at afhente varen i
vores butik i Odense N. - Det giver dig mulighed for at se varen i virkeligheden inden du endeligt beslutter
dig, og samtidig sparer du fragtomkostningen.  - Skriv gerne i kommentar feltet, når du sender os en
forespørgsel via websitet, at du overvejer at afhente i butikken.
