    “Paragon” Porcelain Set From England, 20th Century

    BONE CHINA is one of the most expensive porcelain type. Sophisticated technology of production, complicated formula, handiwork precision. The result of long and hard work – glowing whiteness, uniformity, lightness and light-transmitting substance. Bone China traditional formula amounts 50 % ashes, 25 % kaolin and 25 % Cornwall. It is produced up to 1200 C (2192 F) heat. Bone ashes (calcium phosphate) are extracted by grinding and burning cattle's bone mass. To collect even a little amount of bone powder it is needed a huge weight of bones. Bone porcelain factories used to be close to slaughterhouses. That was a way to ensure provision of the fundamental component. If there appeared a deficiency of bone, bones had been collected in Africa continent, burned, shaped to cocoon and supplied to porcelain manufacturers.
    Kaolin (sedimentary rock) forms in hot and humid climate, by rinsing aluminosilicate and magmatic rocks with water flows. It can be found in mines of many countries: England, France, Germany, Brazil, Bulgaria, Iran, India, Austria, China and Czech Republic.
    Cornwall (feldspato) mineral is crystallized from magma. It can be found in many countries including England region – Cornwall.
    MARKING. The real Bone China is always marked at the bottom of item by 'BoneChina' or 'FineBoneChina' marks. Designation is always English because Bone China's formula was completely perfected and elevated by Josiah Spode in England. For long time Bone China was only product of England, the word 'China' here means porcelain but not the country of the tradition. Anachronistic origin of this word reaches 1000 years history – Tand Dynasty which invented porcelain. So, the first porcelain was invented in China by melting different minerals.
    SUPERVISION. Mostly of Bone China sets are decorated by golden or platinum edges, so they can not be washed in dishwashers or microwaves. The best way to wash them is by hands with soft soap. It is not recommended to pour boiling water straight to cups, at first it is better to pour to teapot. Then the set must stay in shape for decades.
    Bone China is art, science and hard work creation which has a long lasting value. It is used and devolve from one generation to another.
