Paire de petits bustes représentant Louis XV et la reine Marie Leszczinska. La finesse du biscuit en écho à la délicatesse des arts décoratifs du XVIIIe siècle. Biscuit de porcelaine, socle doré à l'or fin. h.11 cm

biscuit ware

Any of the three options lister above can be used. Below please see one search result, which addresses your point:

Bisque is a type of porcelain which is fired twice (this is the meaning
of the French word "biscuit de porcelaine or bis-cuit, ie "twice cooked") in ...
www.dolledup.com/mundia_dolls/creation_1.htm

Please also consider some definitions of "bisque", which I found in Webster's:

bisque
1. (= biscuit) Ceram. unglazed earthenware or porcelain after firing
2. (= biscuit ware) vitreous china that is left unglazed.

Hope that this helps you,
