Different Types of Bone China

Bone china is extremely hard and looks beautiful in gleeming gloss white.

One of the most common questions asked is what the difference is between bone china and porcelain? There are actually a few key differences between these two materials.

Bone china is made from a mix of bone ash, kaolin clay, and feldspar.

Porcelain, on the other hand, is made mostly from kaolin clay with a small amount of quartz.

Bone china is typically thinner and more delicate than porcelain. It's also more translucent, so you can often see light shining through it.

Porcelain is usually stronger and more resistant to chips and cracks. It's also less likely to absorb odours and flavours.

When it comes to choosing between bone china and porcelain, it really depends on your personal preferences. bone china is more fragile but has a beautiful translucence that porcelain doesn't have. Porcelain is more durable but may not be as visually appealing. Ultimately, the choice is up to you!
