What is the Difference between Fine China and Bone China?

Colour

The addition of bone ash gives bone china a warm colour, while fine china which has no bone content will be a brighter white. Look at the two images below. You can see how the bone china is a warmer, creamer colour whilst the fine china is a brighter white. The comparison is more obvious in real life.

Translucency

If you hold the china up to the light, you’ll see that bone china has a translucent quality compared to fine china.

Strength

Contrary to popular belief, bone ash china is not stronger than fine china. The Ox bone ash is simply added to create the warm, soft looking colour and translucency. Porcelain is a much more durable material, and is much harder than either type of china.
