The place setting - Maroon "Essex" by Lenox with a smooth rim was produced from 1938 through 1978.
This is the "footed cup" and saucer - a larger, round cup was also produced in this pattern
The pattern detail is beautiful
Pat never thought when we bought these chargers that we would use them so much - but they have become a favorite.
Sorry the picture doesn't show how striking the napkin ring is but they are really elegant.
The pineapple is the traditional symbol of hospitality dating back to colonial days.
