What kind of bone is used in making Wedgwood tableware?
Our china is manufactured with a type of soft-paste porcelain, which contains greater than 35% tricalcium orthophosphate. This makes our china extremely hard and durable and cannot absorb fluids or food. The processing of the china results in a beautiful translucent white appearance, which is considered among the strongest types of porcelain in the industry.

Why do my plates have grey marks on them?
Some Wedgwood stoneware owners notice grey marks or 'scratches' on their dinnerware. Don't panic—this isn't a defect.These marks can occur when metal utensils are used and meet the hard glazes typically used by most stoneware manufacturers.
Stoneware glazes look and feel very smooth—however the surface is made up of microscopic 'peaks and valleys'. When metal utensils touch the surface of the stoneware, often being softer than the glaze, tiny metal particles get caught in the microscopic valleys, causing those grey marks.
Though some customers refer to these as scratches, there's not usually any actual damage to the glaze or the stoneware body. The good news is that metal deposits can be removed with a variety of cleansers such as Bar Keepers Friend. The combination of chemical action and a mild abrasive in the cleaner easily removes the metal particles from the glaze... Phew!

What's the difference between the way products look online and offline?
