This is a 1978 Lenox Fine China Limited Edition Boehm (Edward Marshall Boehm, Inc.) Plate. This plate depicts a family of Whitetail deer. Information from Lenox: "LENOX, presents, Whitetail Deer, adapted from original works of art designed by Boehm". "Like the exquisite Lenox/Boehm Bird plates, the designs for this new series have been faithfully adapted from original works of art created by the great naturalists and artists of Boehm. With painstaking attention to naturalistic details, this year's plate shows a family of deer in their forest surroundings. The scene is enhanced by a rich border of deep cobalt blue and trimmed with 24-karat gold, highlighting the warm ivory of Lenox China. Whitetail Deer will be issued only during 1978 and only in a limited quantity. It is destined to become a valued collector's item. Two highly respected names in ceramics, Lenox and Boehm, each with a world-wide reputation for quality and artistic achievement, have again combined to create a work of enduring beauty and fine craftsmanship." The plate is 10 5/8" in diameter and is in perfect condition.
