Lenox Mandarin Table

Pat and I own two dinnerware sets called "Mandarin." Pat thought it would be fun to set this week and next week's table using the patterns to show how different manufacturers interpret what they mean by "Mandarin."

This week's "Mandarin" table is from Lenox. It was produced from 1917 through 1969.




Flatware is "Byzantine" by Yamazaki



It still amazes me - the dots and raised flower petals are applied by hand on each piece


To compliment the blue color on the plate, Pat used a blue charger on top of a gold one



I wish I could adequately share how difficult it was to get a set of glasses for this place setting that looked just right. Pat must have tried twenty or more different goblets and none looked good. Then she spotted this inexpensive blue glass from the Dollar Tree. We couldn't believe it - it was perfect!


The candle holders are one of our favorites - "Caprice" Moonlight Blue by Cambridge
