Beautiful Lenox china plate from the Reagan White House, in their signature colors of red and gold, featuring a cross-hatch design that is both elegant and grand in appearance. Service plate measuring 11 5/8'' in diameter is adorned with the Presidential seal in gilt at center and marked on the underside, ''LENOX / MADE IN U.S.A. / THE WHITE HOUSE / 1981''. Ordered by Nancy Reagan, this service was first used on 3 February 1982 at the state dinner for Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak. Mrs. Reagan was criticized at the time for spending money on the service (it was actually a gift from the Knapp Foundation), but she would otherwise have had to use mis-matched china. President Truman's daughter, Margaret Truman came to her defense by saying ''When the President and First Lady give a state dinner, the china should match.'' The largest plate of the collection, measuring 11 5/8'', ideal for display. Near fine condition.
