CSM PHILIPPINES INC. produces Bone china which is considered the finest type of porcelain. Its distinctive qualities are its remarkable translucency, exceptional strength and a natural level of high whiteness. Calcined animal bone ash makes up to 50 % of fine bone china’s properties. Without this ash component, the item is not considered as ‘authentic’ fine bone china.
Bone China is produced adhering to the same formula as perfected by Josiah Spode, a renowned English potter in the late 18th century. The production requires a long and complex process performed by a skilled team of artisans following only the highest standard of quality. This is one reason why bone china has a luxury status.
