Bone China Tea Set

There is something very elegant about a bone china tea set. I was very curious just what it is and I found this out according to Wikipedia:

Bone china is a type of porcelain that is composed of bone ash, feldspathic material and kaolin. It has been defined as 'ware with a translucent body containing a minimum of 30% of phosphate derived from animal bone and calculated calcium phosphate. Developed by English potter Josiah Spode, bone china is known for its high levels of whiteness and translucency, and very high mechanical strength and chip resistance.

It is quite literally made from bone. Learn something new every day.
