A total of 55,100 porcelain items were recently exported from north China's Hebei Province to Britain for Monday's Diamond Jubilee, marking the British Queen's 60th year of rule.

Custom-designed by the British royal family, the porcelain items, including bone china plates printed with the Queen's portrait and white porcelain milk cups, were produced in the city of Tangshan and have a total value of 337,500 U.S. dollars, according to the Hebei Provincial Entry-Exit Inspection and Quarantine Bureau.

The city of Tangshan, known as "porcelain capital in north China," is famous for the production of high-grade bone china. Items manufactured in the city have been exported to the U.S., Britain and Australia.
