China might have invented porcelain, but England popularized it and made is a popular item of desire. Thus, you are likely to find English porcelain from as early as the 18th century. In any case, English porcelain exists on a broader variety than that from China. It was used to make slop bowls, spoon trays, canisters, bowls, and teapots. All of these items were made in sets to ensure uniformity – a big concern at that time. English porcelain is also referred to as bone china.

The Figurines are tiny statues that represent animals and human figures. They are the best for memorabilia collectors who want to have rare, valuable items.
