bone china: they (happily) don’t make it like they used to!

When I hear of “bone china”, the distant and poorer cousin of porcelain, I rightly or wrongly imagine English dinnerware in a fussy 18th century style, which I certainly don’t think of as hip.  So it took my cousin in Madrid to convince me otherwise when he introduced me to Dibbern, the Bavarian manufacturer of modern bone china tableware.  
These guys certainly have it down when it comes to combining traditional 18th century hand made techniques with modern contemporary design focusing on line, shape, color and décor.  They also have their finger on the pulse when it comes to durability, as most of their products are dishwasher and microwaveable safe.  
Practically speaking, I adore that their patterns can be used for both formal and informal entertainment, so there is no need for 2 separate sets of dishes, a huge problem if you’re living in small spaces.
Overall, a huge thumbs up!
