I think it's origin is from the chinese immigrants that came to California during the gold rush. I also found some Native American
indian pottery. The piece is hand made and the porcelain is made
from crushed crystal mineral like feldspar, quartz, granite stone and fine light color clay. It looks like it was made out of the surrounding minerals and stone from the locale of the find. Its pretty interesting to think maybe the chinese immigrants were working with the native indians of the locale and were teaching each other techniques of their cultures trade.
