One reason antique china is still beautiful after a hundred plus years is that it had careful treatment. It was washed and dried by hand. Eventhough dishwasher have become fixtures in most homes "fine bone china should be washed by hand". It can be washed in a dishwasher if you use a very mild dishwashing detergent. Do not let it go through the drying cycle.The heat can damage the finish. So stop the dishwasher before it reaches.
