Woodland Animal Plates by Lenox Cobalt blue on Gold Rim Squirrel, Chipmonk
These exquisite gold-filled plates come from a collection, and we have them all except for the Otter Plate. It is a Limited Edition, Edward Marshall Boehm, the artist.
Lenox fine china has always had a reputation as the American sister to British Oxford, and this collection illustrates just why.
The plates are NEW in the box, never shown, never been on display. I found it among the others when my father passed away. He sold Lenox in his store and apparently collected all of their Limited Edition items, the Animal and the Bird Series.
The birds are even better.
