Set of three 10 ounce bone china mugs by Roy Kirkham decorated with an English country scene complete with animals. Each set includes one mug decorated with a different scene for a total of three mugs. 

One mug features a country manor with a beautiful swan floating in a stream while a majestic white horse drinks the water. A serene blue sky and lush pasture completes the scene. The second mug has a lovely summer scene of a church and mother horse looking after her foal. The last mug has a pastoral scene of a farm house with a black and white cow relaxing in the grass. These three mugs represent a different English countryside that one could almost see themselves wandering through the green landscapes.

Set of three bone china mugs.

Several processes are involved in the making of bone china, but the ingredient that sets it apart from porcelain is that bone ash is added during the manufacturing of the piece. This makes the piece lighter and more translucent than porcelain.

The processing of bone china is more elaborate and more expensive than other types of china, so the price is reflective of this more extensive process. This process also gives bone china mugs and teacups their thin rims and makes sipping a cup of tea more enjoyable. It is easy to tell if your piece is bone china or porcelain. Simple hold it up to the light and it will have a white, translucent look if it is bone china.

Bone china undergoes two firing processes. The first makes the product shrink causing about 20% of the pieces to break. The second firing happens after the piece is glazed to melt the glaze onto the piece. Those that do not crack or break during this stage are decorated with their final patterns. The decoration can be  hand painted, sprayed or decals are applied. Many pieces have gold, silvered, or colored paint applied to the rim.
