Since 1889, Lenox has created china for US presidents, dignitaries as well as the girl next door. In fact, Lenox was the first American china to be used in the White House. I inherited from my father a very elegant partial set of Lenox China from the Presidential Collection; Presidential Lowell pattern P-67 made for Tiffany & Co. The pieces are quite old, very elegant and possibly came from his mother who was the daughter of composer and conductor, Walter Damrosch, and his wife, daughter of James G. Blaine, Govenor and " continental liar of the state of Maine".I am offering these 6 soup bowls. I have a total of 35 pieces of this set being auctioned in separate groupings; three groups each of dinner plates (1830/P.67), soup bowls (7/P.67)and bread and butter dishes (5/P.67). The dinner plates measaure approx. 10 6/16" in diameter, the Soup Bowls measure approx. 8 1/2" in diameter and 1" in depth, and the bread and butter dishes measure approximately 5 3/4" in diameter. I have a total of 12 bread and butter plates and 12 soup bowls being sold in groups of 6, 4 and 2 (this is the group of 4 being sold) and a total of 11 dinner plates being sold in groups of 6, 3 and 2 .Please be sure to take a look at all the pieces which are currently listed on ebay. Around the outer rim of each piece is a classic gold encrusted gilt border with embossed detail. T is a fine gold line around the center. I believe the background to be a cream colored. The pieces are marked with a green Lenox wreath mark, and underneath is printed "Tiffany & Co.". This pattern is really breathtaking and classically elegant. This would be a great addition to any heirloom collection or for mixing with other formal china patterns. Please email me with any questions and I will try my best to answer them. A note on condition: They are in very good condition considering their age. This is an old set of fine china but I can see no real wear or rubbing to the gold rim, some plates have light surface (utensil) scratches. T is no reserve so have some fun bidding!
