It was founded in 1889 by Walter Scott Lenox as "The Lenox Ceramic Pottery Company.” By 1897, examples of the company's work were displayed at the Smithsonian Institution in Washington, D.C. In 1918, President and Mrs. Woodrow Wilson commissioned a set of Lenox for the White House, making it the first American china to grace a U.S. president’s table.
Palais Versailles by Tiffin/Franciscan was produced from 1954 to 1989, and is a striking crystal pattern. Palais Versailles features a convex bowl with a dazzling gold encrusted design, a knobbed, multi-sided air-bubble stem, and a round, clear foot. The Tiffin Glass Company was founded in 1888, when the A.J. Beatty & Sons Glass Factory in Steubenville, Ohio, announced that it would be moving its facilities across the state to Tiffin, Ohio. The new plant began production in 1889, and just three years later, A.J. Beatty & Sons merged into the United States Glass Company. By 1963, USGC had gone into bankruptcy, but a year later, Tiffin Art Glass was born, reviving the company's tradition of quality stemware. When Tiffin Art Glass was acquired by the Continental Can Company two years later, it was renamed the Tiffin Glass Company. Tiffin became a division of the Interpace Corporation in January 1976, and introduced the Franciscan Ware line to its manufacture of pressed glass, sandwich glass, white milk glass, and stemware. In 1979, Leonard Silver Manufacturing Company, a division of Towle Silver, purchased the glassworks. Tiffin Glass Company remained under Leonard Silver’s control until closing its doors in 1983. Tiffin/Franciscan was long noted for the high quality of its crystal, and the gorgeous Palais Versailles pattern featured here is a showcase of craftsmanship and design.
Wallace Silver’s Grand Victorian is an alluring sterling pattern, produced from 1973 to 2009. Showcasing a pierced handle that features an intricate and graceful floral design, Grand Victorian is eye-catching flatware that perfectly complements the elegant floral motif of Palais Versailles crystal and the classic design of Holiday (Dimension) china. Wallace Silver, established in Connecticut nearly two centuries ago, has long been recognized for excellence in tableware craftsmanship. The founder of the company, Robert Wallace, was born in 1815 into a family of silversmiths who had immigrated to New England from Scotland. Apprenticed to William Mix, a renowned Connecticut spoon maker, Wallace, after mastering his trade, purchased a dilapidated grist mill and began to produce his own silver flatware in 1833. Grand Victorian is just one of many examples of Wallace Silver’s high-quality work.
