The processing of bone china is more elaborate and more expensive than other types of china, so the price is reflective of this process. What sets bone china apart from porcelain is that bone ash is added during the manufacturing of the piece. This makes the piece lighter and more translucent than porcelain. This is a first run breakfast cup and saucer as opposed to a second that can contain flaws in the shape of the cup and saucer and/or the decoration. Bone china undergoes two firing processes. The first makes the product shrink causing about 20% of the pieces to break. The second firing happens after the piece is glazed to melt the glaze onto the piece. Those that do not crack or break during this stage are decorated with their final patterns. The decoration can be hand painted, sprayed or decals can be applied to it. English bone china has a long tradition of quality and style that can only be found in china made in Britain. Bone china teapots, mugs, creamer, and sugar sets are now being produced in China and Malaysia.
