Aynsley China

Founded in 1775 by John Aynsle, Aynsley china is a British manufacturer of bone china tableware. Bone china is a soft-paste porcelain composed of at least 30% phosphate derived from animal bone and calculated calcium phosphate. It is revered by collectors for its whiteness and translucency, as well as its chip resistance.

Though it has been around for centuries, Aynsley china continues to be made in the same traditional way. While plates and cups are formed into molds, while other tableware like soup tureens, teapots, and bowls are hand cast using liquid clay. Handles are then hand cast and applied, and finally, decoration is applied by hand by lithographic transfers, hand enameling, or hand gilding.
