Ceramic Tableware

Ceramic tableware 

In the introduction to the section on product knowledge, we have explained the meaning of the collective term “ceramics” in detail. It is the term used for all non-metallic tableware made of inorganic and clay-mineral raw materials. In everyday use, however, the term “ceramic tableware” is often and gladly used. The vernacular means “crockery of lower quality than porcelain“. 

Tableware and tableware can be found today in the following quality classes:

Fine ceramics – Fired ceramics (1,200 – 1,290 °C)

  • Earthenware
  • Stoneware
  • Stoneware 
  • Porcelain stoneware
  • Stoneware
  • Durable China
  • Diamond China
  • Dynamite China
  • Magnesium Porcelain
  • New Bone China
  • Fine China 
  • High Fine Bone
  • Ivory China 
  • Luxor Cream
  • Bone china
  • Soft Porcelain

It is not possible for the layman and often also for the expert to distinguish between these ceramic quality classes for tableware. In order to be able to do so, one must at least know the raw material composition and firing temperatures exactly. This, by the way, is the reason for the fact that all partner plants that produce porcelain for Holst are subjected to a thorough examination and personal audit by our staff.

The division into quality classes is a clear and simple method to distinguish “ceramics” from higher quality porcelain.
