I got 400ml mugs on sale and they arrived today.
They claim to be porcelain and are quite heavy so I may return them.
Does anyone know there I could find 400-600 ml bone china, plain white mugs?

Bone China tends not to be associated with such enormous mugs!

I was hoping those I was buying were lighter. I have porcelain 500 ml mugs which are much lighter but can't source them any more.

I never saw bone chine bigger than 250 ml so that may be the max size they are made in.

John Lewis has 500ml white porcelain mugs which don't look heavy.

I have many different mugs. Those referred as bone chine when you put your fingers against them you can see light coming through.
I managed to acquire 4x500ml plain white mugs like that a while ago at a market. I would have bought 20 at least but had no way to carry it. Of those I have only 2 left.
I was hoping to get something similar.
I know that Jami Oliver ones I got this morning, 400 ml are porcelain. Porcelain doesn't let light through I believe and is relatively heavier.

(firts world problem, I know!)

all bigger mugs are porcelain not bone chine but good to have that as a back up

John Lewis Queensbury range £8 each. Bone china,cup shape rather than mug.

I meant this is best so far:

I doubt I can get Conran mug to a fiver!
