I found a shop specializing in bone china made in central China¡¯s Tangshan, a city famous for porcelain. Their goods can be used not only as tableware for everyday use, but also as fine decorations.
When I went into the shop, I saw that there were many porcelain wares neatly presented throughout the store. This included bowls, plates, vases, and tea sets.
The shop owner, Mr. Zhang, welcomed me and said this is an outlet of a famous bone china manufacturer in Tangshan. He was born there, and he decided to bring Tangshan¡¯s quality local products to Beijing.
He said yak bone is a key material in their products, because it guarantees that their bone china looks very delicate.
I found a seven-piece tea set very intriguing. It has one tea pot and six tea cups. The surface of each item features a snow-white backdrop and blue flower patterns. I found the set so tasteful that I couldn¡¯t help but pick up the pot. It felt extremely exquisite, and much lighter than I imagined. The handle is made of cane, which transfers very little heat.
Some of their plates were also very beautiful. The patterns include beautiful women from Chinese history and wonderful nature scenes. They are very nice indeed.
What I appreciated
Quality, nice bone china
What customers appreciate
