|Type Name:||PORCELAIN, BONE CHINA|
Thin, white, vitreous, nearly translucent paste.
Surface glaze is white or light ivory and glossily reflective, with little evidence of imperfections. While well-bonded to the paste, the glaze is apparent in cross section.
Examples with decoration generally have overglaze polychrome enamel and gilded designs. Floral patterns are very common, but a wide variety of design motifs can occur.
