Where to start with this absolutely wonderful antique 6 setting coffee set…

The silver.

Six solid silver saucers all with hallmarks for Birmingham 1922 and makers mark of esteemed Silversmiths Mappin & Webb.

Size pierced sold silver cup holders with matching hallmarks as above.

The China.

Beautiful US Lenox Lowell patterned bone china cups in as new condition.

The Lowell pattern was first introduced in 1917 and continues to this day. The age of these cups can be determined by the green wreath on the base of each cup

Lenox in the Early 20th Century

In the early 20th century, separate dining rooms and hostess parties became the trendy thing to do.
Lenox became popular when they started producing custom designed, elaborate dining plates.
Famous artists of the time were hired to design the plates.
After the success of the plates, Lenox started to produce complete dinnerware sets.

Chief designer at Lenox, Frank Holmes, contributed greatly to Lenox’s brand and popularity by winning several awards, including the 1927 Craftsmanship Metal of the American Institute of Architects and the silver metal of the American Designers Institute in 1943.

In 1928, the National Museum of Ceramics in Sèvres, France started to display 34 pieces of Lenox porcelain, (including designs by Frank Holmes) which was the only US-made porcelain to ever receive this honor.

I have no idea of knowing how many of these sets were produced or how much full sets still exist, especially in this condition

All pieces set in the original presentation box which does have some staining as shown and has very slight damage to the outer

The weight of the silver is 390gms or 13 ounces

Apologies in advance for the expensive overseas shipping costs but it is heavy and bulky
