WHAT IS FINE BONE CHINA?

Bone china is considered as the finest type of porcelain. Calcined bone ash makes up 50% of fine bone china's properties. Without this ash component, the item is not considered as 'authentic' fine bone china. It has its own inherent qualities which are not found in most porcelain, most significant are:

  1. It has a silky white color compared to the common grayish color of porcelain.
  2. It is much more translucent than porcelain and tends to glow when lighted up from the inside
  3. It exudes a special aura when kept in a specially lighted space.
  4. It can be made thinner and finer-looking without sacrificing durability
  5. By history, it has a reputation as expensive and is associated with wealth and royalty
The production of handmade fine bone china requires a long and complex process by a skilled team of artisans following only the highest standards of quality. This contributes to its high demand and luxury status in the market. CSM adheres to the same formula perfected by Josiah Spode, a renowned English potter in the late 18th century.
