Tangshan Bone China

Tangshan bone china, one of the local specialties, also belongs to the National Geographic Indication Products.

This kind of china is fired twice with high and low temperature respectively, using bone ash, clay, feldspar and quartz as raw materials. Its features can be summarized as thin like a piece of paper, white like a jade ware, translucent like a mirror and the sound of clicking it like a bell. The earliest bone china was made in England in around 1800 and it is called the“king of porcelain” because of its luxurious status and high price. It possesses practical and artistic values and has always been the symbol of identity and social position.

Tangshan bone china was first produced in Ming Dynasty so the city is called“ the capital of porcelain of northern China”. The china shows a natural white and translucent color. Click it, you’ll hear clear and melodious sound; touch it, you’ll feel that it’s light and smooth.

On 23rd, November, 2012, the former National Administration of Quality Supervision approved the protection of Tangshan Bone China as a Geographic Indication Product.
