Flowers in a China Vase

Purchase a bouquet of flowers and place them in a suitable china vase. The person you are giving them to will not need to find a vase to place them in. The flowers as they have not been out of water for too long should have a longer life.

Facts about China

Fine china is known as porcelain or bone china. Bone china is produced by adding bone ash to china clay. China clay largely contains the mineral kaolin.

Porcelain is used to make wares for the table and kitchen, sanitary wares, decorative wares, and objects of fine art. Its high resistance to the passage of electricity makes porcelain an excellent insulating material. Porcelain is also used in dentistry to make false teeth, caps and crowns.

The earliest porcelains originated in China possibly around 25-220 AD.
