What is it with bone china that makes dining so elegant? Is it the gleaming ivory surface or that “tink”
that you hear with a slight knock of the spoon on the porcelain? Perhaps it is the irony of fine china, at once delicate and sturdy, that adds to its appeal. After all, not even oceans can claim shiploads of centuries-old porcelain that have been unearthed in recent times, lending further mystic to this luminous material. Many a porcelain attraction is made even starker by a Salisbury
dinnerware. Fine bone china that is made in England, the marking confidently proclaims; that’s your guarantee that you are getting genuine bone porcelain that can withstand the times. The classical patterns in gold-rimmed Salisbury plates are a highlight of porcelain craftsmanship that matches the ancient artisans in the Middle Kingdom.
Salisbury is available at Schiffman's at Friendly Center.
