Bone China is porcelaneous body that contains calcium carbonate. This gives the ware strength and whitens it. One difference between porcelain and bone china is the whiteness of bone china.True bone china is almost snow-white. Another is the translucence of bone china: holding it to a light with your hand behind the china should reveal the shadow of your hand. Porcelain will not do so. Bone china was invented in England in the late eighteenth century, and was apparently superior in strength, translucency, thinness, and whiteness to the porcelain then being produced in Europe.If you compare bone china with all other types of porcelain you will notice the difference immediately. The body of most porcelain has an off-white greyish cast, except for some American china which is ivory colored. True bone china is almost snow-white. Bone China is far more expensive than porcelain as it has superior qualities mentioned above.
