Wedgwood is a revered porcelain brand in the United Kingdom. Since Queen Charlotte's order in 1765, the brand has become immensely popular among European and American aristocrats. One of Wedgwood's most famous products is its bone china, which contains up to 51% bone ash. The added ash creates a ceramic with exceptional thermal insulation, translucency, and durability.
