With a history of over 200 years, bone china is considered some of the finest tableware in the world. It's made from ashes of cattle and sheep bones, mixed with other components. Bone chinaware is pure white, translucent, and more durable compared to other china.

A shop on Xing Long Street holds a large amount of bone china. The helpful shop owner told me all are produced in the city of Tangshan, close to Beijing. And the brand Hai Ge Lei is the most popular among customers.

While I examined the beautiful paintings on each plate. The owner said that each piece was fired at over 2200º F. So the colorful designs will remain intact even after years of use. Bone china is healthy too, as it doesn't contain lead.

Prices vary from RMB 200 to RMB 1000. 

The shop also offers western-style plates and tea sets. Price of one tea set could reach several thousand RMBs.

What I appreciate:
Beautiful bone china of various styles

What customers appreciate:
Quality bone china with the traditional Chinese paintings
