What Is Fine Bone China?
Bone China is made with a minimum of 25% bone ash, which gives it a slightly more translucent appearance. Hold a piece of bone china up to a light with your fingers between the two, and you will be able to see your fingers through it. The manufacturing process is more labour intensive than for standard porcelain, so it costs a bit more.
