The Ceramic Art Co. came into existence in Trenton, N.J. in 1889, with Jonathan Coxon, and Walter D. Lenox. Ceramic Arts Company became Lenox, Inc. in 1905. The Belleek ware was either decorated artistically, by the best painters or produced in the white state for amateur and professional decorators. Several of the back-stamps used on undecorated pieces was the initials of the Company and a painter’s palette, printed in purple and other colors; on undecorated ware, called “Indian China,” previous to 1895, an Indian’s head; and on special decorative work for the trade, a wreath enclosing the full name of the Company.
This gorgeous tea pot in high gloss porcelain was either decorated in a professional studio or a home studio environment by a gifted artist. The piece is not artist signed. It is decorated with stunning bachelor button blossoms in shades of blue, violet and yellow/green on thin stems covered with shaded green, tan, blue and gray foliage. The spout, handle, lid and top edge is adorned with delicate sculptured scrolls and geometric designs accented with gold.
The tea pot measures 8 1/2" in height, 7" from spout-to-handle, 2 3/4" across the base and is marked in purple with the "pallet mark". There are no cracks, chips or repairs; near mint. Gorgeous.
