Oxford China (Lenox) Special Gold Wedding Band Dessert Fruit or Bowls

Oxford China was manufactured by Lenox starting in the early 60's. According to Lenox's website, at least some decorations were still in production in 1993. There was only one pattern (one set of shapes for this line) but there were more than sixty decorations.

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 the dessert/fruit bowls. They are 5.75" in diameter. We also have coupe under plates, which I believe were designed so that these bowls could be used as cream soups. They are listed separately .

Condition is excellent to near mint; only slight scratches from use in the center of the bowls. 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.
