Wedgwood Bone China

Bone china is a type of porcelain body originally formulated in Great Britain. Calcined cattle bone (bone ash) makes up the main element. It isidentified by its rich whiteness, semitransparency and durability. Output ordinarily calls for a two stage firing where the first, bisque, is without a glaze at 1280 °C (2336 °F), which gives a semitransparent material and then glaze, or glost, fired at a lower temperature below 1080 °C (1976 °F).

The major discovery occurred when Wedgwood became the inaugural manufacturer in eighteenth century England to introduce the consummate formula of fine bone china. This was a copy of tea-ware brought in from China which was highly fashionable with members of high society. These were fragile pieces: transluscent under candlelight, lily-white, and light.

However, the high shipping costs and the arduous long journey from the Far East signified that the supply of china could not keep pace with the progressively high demand. Whomever would be first to bring out a domestic variation would be the winner. The introduction of English fine bone china by Wedgwood most certainly contributed to a highly fruitful business. Nearly two hundred and fifty years later, the popularity of Wedgwoods fine bone china is global. Wedgwood shops in London routinely welcome buyers from all across the globe buying their fine bone china.
