Contemporary: Bone China
Flower: No 36th anniversary flower
The term china typically refers to quality porcelain dishes or dishware. Bone china was developed during the 1700’s in England. It became a popular alternative form of china due to the imposition of heavy import duties on Chinese porcelain during this time. Bone china is made by mixing bone ash into porcelain clay, resulting in china that is lighter, stronger and whiter than normal porcelain.
