From the info gleaned from the recent dinnerware discussion, I am shopping around for a new set of bone china and have found vast discrepancies in prices.
I admit to general ignorance on bone china quality (though I've googled some education), but what accounts for such price differences, other than name brand markup? Should I be on the lookout for bone ash content? Glazing technique? Multiple step processes? Anything else?
I am only considering simple white patterns -- no inlays, no color details nor any texture details. Plain white. So unless someone can come up with a great reason not to, I am going with an inexpensive bone china set I've found online.
