This auction is for a vintage antique oval vegetable serving bowl in Lenox China ,,,,,,,,,,,, pattern 86 1/2. Ivory base color with wide gold band measuring a half inch around the edge and a narrow line of gold pinstriping inside of that. The same pinstriping goes around the base of the vegetable bowl . .The vegetable bowl is 8 1/2 " in length and is offered thru a replacement company for $199.99 so this is a fine buy. This pattern was discontinued in 1925. The bottom has the Lenox green mark and printed in gold above is the pattern number /86 1/2..This is similar to a lot of the other patterns in Lenox with gold on ivory and probably can be mixed and matched. The gold on this pattern is not embossed, it is a solid band. Piece is in very good condition with minimal wear from usage, there is some scuffing on the gold and it is probably from stacking and packing. The gold in itself is intact and in good condition. This is a good chance to pick up pieces of a pattern that is discontinued and that was most likely the elegant formal china of the times ................................... I have listed matching luncheon plates in a separate auction. This item will ship on the 29th of april when I return home from vacation if purchased prior to that date.
