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.
Produced from 1965 to 1977, Lenox Crystal Georgetown (Gold Encrusted) features a multisided stem, a round foot, and a wide band of gold trim on a squarish bowl that flares at the top. This dazzling, gold encrusted crystal perfectly complements the Lenox Holiday china and Kelly Gold flatware patterns. Since the 1950s, about half the china set on dinner tables in this country has borne the Lenox backstamp. Responding to consumer demand, Lenox introduced a line of hand-blown crystal to complement its china in 1966. In 1991, again responding to consumers, Lenox began to produce silver flatware, making it the first company in America to offer the complete tabletop.
Kelly Gold by Lenox Flatware is an 18/8 stainless flatware pattern (18/8 represents the ratio of chromium and nickel used in the stainless steel, which adds luster and durability to the pieces) featuring a glossy finish with gold accents and a whimsical, graceful design. Born in 1859, the founder of Lenox, Walter Scott Lenox, was named for the nineteenth-century Scottish writer, Sir Walter Scott. Lenox grew up in Trenton, NJ, the "Staffordshire of America" of its time. With excellent transportation and good sources of fuel and clay, the state capital of New Jersey became the nation's leading center for ceramics production. Lenox first organized his company as an art studio, producing one-of-a-kind pieces for a select market. By 1906 the company was producing complete sets of dinnerware, and Lenox tableware and gifts remain hugely popular today, more than 120 years after the company’s inception!
