One of our wedding presents was a 36 piece white bone china dinner set. Plates, bowls and small plates. When we registered we chose those rather than others with patterns as I knew these should last us for years and years. We have been careful, not exposing then to temperature change too much and we've had them since February of this year.
Well, last night DH was washing up and one if the plates broke in two cleanly. Not even and slivers of china, just right down the middle. He said he may have heard a 'pop' sound when he put a hamburger patty on them, but he's not sure. But we've had these less than a year! Never dropped them, knocked them or had near misses. We also don't have a dishwasher, so everything is hand washed.
I'm going to call the company, but am I right in thinking this should not have happened? When we got them delivered, we had to get them exchanged as a plate had broken so something else going wrong is upsetting. We are pretty sure we could purchase a replacement, but this was a wedding present.
