  Ceramic originated from China,but bone china was made by an English man.The first bone chair was made by Thomas Frye at his Bow porcelain factory near Bowin East in 1748. His factory was located very close to the cattle markets and slaughterhouses of Essex, so it’s easy to get animal bones. Frye used up to 45% bone ash in his formulation to create what he called ‘fine porcelain.Although the quality was better than the ceramic imported from Europe and China,the factory was not a commercial success.

  Later, Josiah Spode in Stoke-on-Trent further developed the concept between 1789 and 1793, introducing his "Stoke China" in 1796, the year before his sudden death.His son Josiah II quickly renamed the ware "Bone china".Among his developments was to abandon Frye’s procedure of calcining the bone together with some of the other body raw materials, instead calcining just the bone. Bone china quickly proved to be highly popular, leading to its production by other English pottery manufacturers.

Production locations

  For almost 200 years from its development bone china was almost exclusively produced in the UK. During the middle part of the 20th century manufacturers in other countries began production, with the first successful ones outside the UK being in Japan: Noritake, Nikko and Narumi. 

  In more recent years production in China has expanded considerably, and the country is now the biggest producer of bone china in the world. Other countries producing considerable amounts of bone china are BangladeshIndia,IndonesiaSri anka,Thailand and Iran.

  From the start of the first factory, Bengal Potteries, in 1964, bone china output from Indian factories had risen to 10,000 tonnes per year by 2009.  Rajasthan has become a hub for bone china in India, with production in the state totaling 16-17 tonnes per day.

  Lenox is the only major manufacturer of bone china in the United States, and has supplied presidential services to the White House.
