Oxford China (Lenox) Special Gold Wedding Band Coupe Under Plates
At least five of them were simply labeled "Special," including this one. Lenox still uses the "Special" designation on certain items, like their Christmas Holly pattern, so it is possible that these decorations were special or limited runs. (I'm sorry that this all seems so sketchy, but Lenox is famously un-forthcoming when it comes to historical information about their product.)
This particular line (labeled "O1" by a major china replacement service) is white glazed china with a simple gold "wedding band" at the rims of the pieces. This minimalist decoration emphasizes the classic lines of the china. It would work equally well in a traditional or modern setting.
For sale here are a number of smaller coupe plates that were probably designed to go under the coupe dessert/sauce bowl so they could be used as cream soup bowls. I cannot find them listed anywhere. They are 7.25" in diameter.
Condition is excellent; very slight wear to the centers of the plates. No wear to the gold; no chips or other damage.
Marked in gold on the bottom: "OXFORD / Bone China" followed by the Lenox "L" mark, then "SPECIAL / Made in the U.S.A."
We have a large partial set of this china that we have listed. Please search our site or email up if you are looking for particular pieces.
Price is per plate.
