From my understanding Porcelain is a type of ceramic used for making dishes and things like that, Bone China is a type of Porcelain that contains bone ash

Bone china is made of real bone, making it thinner, more durable, and better quality. You can see the difference better if you hold up two plates against a light source. The bone china will be transluscent (you can see the light through it).
