The clay used to make fine china sometimes has the inclusion of bone (usually cow bone) and when the amount of bone equals at least 30% of the clay, the product resulting from the various processes is called bone china. Why is bone china so desirable? Because the inclusion of bone ash in the clay results in stronger, more durable china, which is better suited for making dishes and cups. Bone china is also more translucent, an extremely desirable feature in china. Dunoon makes very fine, high quality and beautiful English bone china coffee mugs and tea cups and tea pots, including the charming little sets called 'tea for one.' The beautiful tea cups offered here include heart, dots, strawberries, birds, guitars, cats, and a myriad of glorious flowers.
