This is a beautiful little dish that could hold candy, jelly etc. It has a soft creamy white background that has been adorned with silver overlay. The softly scalloped rim has been covered with silver and a silver design of vines leaves and flowers have been extended onto the out-turned rim and down the inside. The base has also been decorated with a silver rim and flora. This piece is in excellent condition with no chips or cracks. Manufacturing anomalies may exist, the occasional tiny iron speck, dust 'bump' in the glaze, etc.
Lenox was founded in 1889 by Walter Scott Lenox as Lenox's Ceramic Art Company, Trenton, New Jersey. From the start it was organized as an art studio and not as a factory. It did not have full lines of ceramics but rather one-of-a-kind artwares. The company at first had just eighteen employees. Their products were carried in shops specializing in high-quality pottery. Lenox's products were first displayed at The Smithsonian Institution in 1897. Lenox was the first North American bone china to be used in the White House, and the company has since made tableware for six U.S. presidents. Lenox tableware is at the vice president's official residence, more than 300 United States embassies, and more than half of the governors' mansions. Dignitaries of the United States Congress and Department of State have received Lenox giftware. The Metropolitan Museum of Art and Smithsonian Institution have as centerpieces in exhibitions of American decorative arts Lenox pottery. The Lenox backstamp is on about half of all fine porcelain dinnerware purchased since the 1950s in America. Lenox remains the only major manufacturer of bone china based in the United States.
