Lenox- Butterfly Pitcher
Are you familiar with the Lenox company? Lenox has been a part of American history since it was founded in 1889 by Walter Scott Lenox.
“It is my will and desire that Lenox, Incorporated shall at all times manufacture the highest possible grades of porcelain, that the standard of excellence already attained shall ever be advanced…”
— Walter Scott Lenox
As an exclusive shop by 1897, and only 18 employees to handcraft his work whereas others had progressed to factory work, his work was already included in the Smithsonian Institute!
Presidential History: Indeed, the Lenox name had quickly become synonymous with elegant tableware, chosen for the “best” homes — including theWhite 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).
Walter Lenox passed away in 1920 and after his death the production facility doubled in size by the end of that year. In 1966 Lenox started with crystal. My mom collected Lenox Crystal as it is still considered a high quality crystal and had made special pieces for Governors, Dignitaries, Presidents, and many others. With the name Lenox you know you have quality!
I was looking on the Lenox website, and fell in love with a Butterfly Pitcher made with Non leaded Crystal and hand etched and beautiful to this butterfly addict. I thought I would notify Lenox about doing a review and giveaway with this piece, sure I was going to be declined when I got the email that they needed address to ship it to me and ok’d a giveaway! I was so excited. I think this is the happiest I have been since doing reviews and giveaways, so I hope the winner loves this as much as I do!
