Description

As America's appetite for high-quality china grew, the company satisfied it by producing dinnerware with standardized patterns in addition to the custom-made pieces. After introducing a few patterns in 1910 that were decorated with transfer prints enhanced with hand-applied color, Lenox started using full-color lithographic decals. The first two of these patterns — Mandarin and Ming, introduced in 1917 — would be popular for 50 years. Decals not only assured uniform decoration but also created an identifiable pattern, which gave a hostess the silent satisfaction of knowing that dinner guests would recognize the Lenox brand, as well as her sophistication in selecting it.
ndeed, the Lenox name had quickly become synonymous with elegant tableware, chosen for the "best" homes — including the White House. President and Mrs. Wilson commissioned an official state service of 1, 700 pieces in 1918, making Lenox the first American china to grace a president's table.
It remains the only American porcelain in continuous use at the White House for more than 80 years, with new services created for four subsequent presidents: Truman (1951), Reagan (1981), Clinton (2000) and George W. Bush (2008).
