Fine bone china is one of the strongest ceramic bodies, surprisingly it’s a slight softness in the ceramic body that makes it resistant to chipping.
Extra information for caring for your gilded or non gilded items as below.
Fine Bone China with Gold or Platinum Gilding
These items are not dishwasher safe, as the chemicals can be too abrasive on the gilding.
When hand-washing use only warm water, as very hot water can cause our gold and platinum detailing to flake away. Use only mild detergents and a sponge or soft dishcloth – do not use abrasive pads.
Any gilded items are not microwave safe.
Fine Bone China without Metallic Gilding
Dishwasher and microwave safe.
Oven safe, but please be aware of thermal shock. Extreme changes in temperature, for example placing a plate out of the oven on a hard cold surface, or pouring boiling water in a very cooled mug can cause cracking.
Stain removal. Most stains can be removed with bicarbonate or soda or baking powder.
