I'm trying to buy a set of bone china but I know next to nothing about it. Who makes bone china? Is any fine china "bone china"? Thanks!

Is it Really Bone China? - A Quick Way to Verify!

A piece of bone china contains at least 25% of bone ash, and this compound not only adds strength and white color to the china, but also makes it translucent. Not totally transparent, but enough for the light to pass through it.

Not really, is Waterford china classified as "bone china"? I'm just looking around at the moment, it's a Christmas gift too so I'm taking my time.
