American Fine China Maker: Lenox

American Fine China Maker: Lenox
It had occured to me that I had never bought any American-made souvenirs during the many trips that I had been to the U.S.

Luckily during my recent trip to Seattle, I came across a pair of bone china baby swans (cygnets) at the Seattle Antiques Market (1400 Alaskan Way) that are made in the U.S.A.

Before I asked for the price, I told myself that I wouldn't be willing to pay more than USD $20 for the pair. The shopkeeper told me that it's a group of three, including the mother swan (which I was not hugely interested) and they cost USD $20 altogether.

Deal!

Even tthough all three swans are made by American fine china maker Lenox, I don't think they originally were a set, as the maker's stamp on the mother swan appears to be older than the cygnets.
