Lenox china factory in NC
When selecting tableware for your house, you have a number of choices: earthenware, stoneware, and porcelain. Among porcelain products, you've got basic porcelain, fine china and bone china. Many well appointed homes stock at least one, if not a combination of two or more of these options. In fact, one of the oldest standing customs for a bride and groom is registering for a china pattern.

No matter how elaborate or lovely the place setting, when it comes down to it, you're usually more concerned about what's being served on the china, rather than the china itself. But if you ever stopped to consider how china is made, you'd be amazed -- it's actually fascinating.
