What is Bone China?
Bone China is a High Grade Porcelain known for its transparency. It originated in China between 960 and 1127 A.D, when it was made for the royal family during the Song Dynasty. It has been passed from generations to generations, making China the best in the business.
Bone China’s are created with ground ox bones to create a lighter and stronger finished product with a more translucent appearance. When Bone China pieces are held against the light, you will notice its excellent transparency as light passes through.
