New makers with tighter marketing plans have taken their place over the last 60 years or so.Here are the two main things to remember about the vintage and antique pottery marks of France (we have discovered most of this stuff thanks to our China Chat posts - scroll to bottom of the page to browse them).1.Keukenhof Gardens If you’re visiting Amsterdam in spring, a day trip to Keukenhof Gardens near Lisse is an absolute must.They only open for a couple of months a year and always produce a miraculous psychedelic carpet of color from the seven million bulbs planted here, with some 100 varieties of tulip as well as daffodils and hyacinths.Wedgwood, being very cautious about luxury porcelains, chose not to go into bone china at first.

Bone china is a type of porcelain with added animal bone.
The firing temperature needs to be high and so is expensive to produce.
Roxanne and Bill Wilson have financed and maintained the KV-63 website since 2006 and will continue to do so into the future.
We are honored to perpetuate this historical event and record of the KV-63 discovery and the efforts made by many dedicated individuals.
