About Bone China

It all started with a single bone china cup. You found it at a garage sale and immediately fell in love with its intricate pattern. You bought it and vowed to track down the entire bone china set to which it belongs, and eventually you located the matching saucer and cake plate. It was the start of a large collection that went on to include bone china plates, bowls, teapots, and many other pieces. Bone china gets its name from the bone ash used in the porcelain, which gives it enough strength to produce very fine yet strong china. It is so fine that it is slightly translucent, and it frequently features gilding and enamel motifs. Whether you are a serious collector or you simply want to replace a broken saucer from your wedding set, you can find plenty of individual pieces and china collections on eBay.
