Confused by all of the different things people call "china"? You are not alone. We use it every day and we trust it enough to eat off it, but few people know exactly what it is that distinguishes fine china from casual dinnerware. The most important thing to know when selecting your china is to make sure it reflects your personality and lifestyle. Enjoy it! You are, after all, the person who has to live with it. Part of enjoying your china is appreciating where it came from, what it is, and how to best take care of it.
