Ronald Reagan White House China

State dinners by the Reagan administration had become quite large that china from several administrations had to be combined to accommodate all the guests. First Lady Nancy Reagan ordered a 4,370 piece china set from Lenox, inspired by Woodrow Wilson’s china, that contained 220 placesettings. The set cost a reported $209,508 which was paid for by a donation from the J.P. Knapp Foundation.

We at Nate D. Sanders Auctions sold a White House china plate from the Reagan administration for $1,250. Please see details below:

Ronald Reagan White House China Plate — ”THE WHITE HOUSE / 1981”

Beautiful Lenox china plate from the Reagan White House, in their signature colors of red and gold. Salad plate is adorned with the Presidential seal in gilt at top and marked on the back, ”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, but she would otherwise have had to use mis-matching 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.” This plate is actually from the service used in the White House and not one of the exhibit pieces. Measures 8.375” in diameter. Near fine condition. Sold for $1,250.
