Additionally, are Chinese dishes worth anything? Hard-to-find antique pieces from well-known companies like Lenox or Welmar may be more valuable than other brands that mass produced their items. For example, an antique piece of Rose Medallion china may be worth thousands if it is several hundred years old, while newer pieces of Noritake china are not worth as much.
Also, how many pieces is a full set of china?
Place settings come in either 4- or 5-piece sets. The 4-piece place setting, usually found in casual china sets, includes a dinner plate, salad/dessert plate, soup/cereal bowl, and mug. The 5-piece setting, typical of formal china, includes a dinner plate, salad/dessert plate, bread plate, and a cup and saucer.
Why is fine china so expensive?
Processed bone ash makes up the biggest part of the recipe, the rest being kaolin or china clay and feldspar or China stone. This translucency is achieved, not only because of the recipe, but also due to the very high (vitreous) temperature of the kiln firing. The higher the temperature, the more expensive the firing.
