Founded in 1889 by Walter Scott Lenox in Trenton, NJ, the “Staffordshire of America” of its time, the Lenox Ceramic Pottery Company produced art-quality pieces. By 1897, examples of Lenox’s work were displayed at the Smithsonian Institution in Washington, DC. 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 president’s table.
Featuring beautiful polished crisscross cuts on a convex bowl, Chelsea crystal by Waterford looks gorgeous on any table. With its understated, elegant design and dazzling gold trim, Chelsea is an especially fine accompaniment to Holiday (Dimension) china and Golden Winslow (Sterling) flatware. Waterford Crystal dates back to the Flint Glass Works, founded in 1783 on the quay in the port town of Waterford when George and William Penrose opened the Flint Glass Works. In 1788, Waterford produced a glassware service as a gift to her Majesty, Charlotte Sophia, wife to King George III. The King and Queen were so charmed by the crystal service that they ordered the set to be displayed at Cheltenham castle. Today “Waterford” is synonymous with fine crystal, and is found in households around the world.
Kirk Stieff Silver Golden Winslow (Sterling) is a glossy sterling pattern with an exquisite, gold-accented geometric edge-design. Golden Winslow (Sterling) was produced for almost 160 years, from 1850 to 2009! Kirk Stieff Silver is the culmination of two great Baltimore, MD, traditions. Charles Stieff founded Stieff Silver in 1892; Samuel Kirk founded his silversmith firm much earlier, in 1815 (Kirk’s firm is acknowledged as the oldest silversmith company in America). The firms were combined in 1979. From their inception, both companies were recognized for innovative design and master craftsmanship. Just before World War II, Stieff began to produce silver for Colonial Williamsburg to make replicas of American pieces going back to silversmiths like Paul Revere.
