"What is Vitreous china:  Vitreous china is an enamel coating that is applied to ceramics, particularly porcelain, after they've been fired, though the name can also refer to the finished piece as a whole. The coating makes the porcelain tougher, denser, and shinier, and it is a common choice for things like toilets and sink basins.

"How It’s Made: The word “vitreous” means “glass-like,” and that’s just what the glaze does for ordinary ceramics: it makes them look shiny and reflective while maintaining and in most cases actually strengthening their durability. The glaze itself is usually made of composite minerals and powdered glass. It is typically sold as a powder that artisans and manufacturers must melt down, in a kiln or specialized oven, before using.

"Once the glaze has reached its melting point it can be painted, or “glazed,” onto the surface of the ceramic piece. Most of the time the piece getting painted must otherwise be finished, making this one of the very last steps. The enamel must usually be left to dry for a time, then the piece re-fired to seal the coating. Past this point, the item can usually be itself described as “vitreous china.” - WiseGeek (online May 2017)
