Glossary

  • Bone china

    Bone china

    A porcelain made from clay and feldspathic rock with the addition of about 50 percent of calcined animal bone. Josiah Wedgwood II introduced bone china at the Wedgwood Etruria factory in 1812.

  • First Period bone china

    First Period bone china

    'First Period' bone china was produced by Wedgwood  around 1810 - 1820, although the product had originally been perfected by Spode. For Wedgwood it was not a success at first and was withdrawn from the product range quite quickly. Owing mainly to competitive pressure and Wedgwood's inability to match fashionable tastes, bone china had been introduced far too quickly in order to keep up with other factories who were surging ahead with its development.
