BONE CHINA

Have you ever wondered where bone china got it's name?  Josiah Spode is credited for originating bone china about 1800 in England. The basic formula for bone china has remained the same for two centuries and consists of (6) parts bone ash, (4) parts china stone and (3 1/2) parts china clay. Bone china has many desirable attributes. It is easy to make, does not easily chip and produces a lovely white ivory color.
