Halacha - bone china toiyvel
Submitted by anonymous  Answered by Rav Peretz Moncharsh
Answer: Bone china is a mix of animal bone and porcelain. A utensil made from bone does not require tevila at all. Porcelain, which is regular china, is a machlokes whether it is more similar to ceramic which does not need tevila or glass which does miDerabbannnan. Since most china is coated with a glass, enamel glaze, it should be toiveled without a beracha regardless of the Halacha of bone china itself.
