Sell Your Woodrow Wilson White House China

The china commissioned by the Woodrow Wilson administration in 1918 was the first to be manufactured in the United States, at Lenox’s New Jersey factory. Lenox would be commissioned by five more presidents to make their china services. Wilson’s china was also the first presidential china that featured the presidential seal instead of the Great Seal of the U.S. This china service also went on to be used by the Harding, Coolidge and Hoover administrations.

Woodrow Wilson White House Exhibit Collection China Cup & Saucer by Lenox — Fine

Cup and saucer in the classic Woodrow Wilson White House pattern. China is from the Exhibit Collection, a specially-issued edition used in displays at the White House and other public showcases of Presidential china. The Wilson pattern features a two-toned ivory china base and rim decorated with gilt bands and a gilt presidential seal. A tasteful and timeless design, it was reordered in the White House by Harding, Coolidge and Hoover. According to the second edition of ”Official White House China”, Tiffany was first approached to design the china, but Lenox of Trenton, New Jersey, who had been courting the White House for the commission, ultimately won the contract in 1918. Lenox was, at that time, the first American-made china to grace the tables of the executive mansion and its innovative beauty and quality earned it widespread recognition as well as a place in the Smithsonian. Cup measures just over 3.5” in diameter at the mouth and just over 2” high. Saucer measures 5.25” in diameter. Both pieces feature the Lenox mark to undersides, labeled Exhibit Collection, 1918. Fine. From the Raleigh DeGeer Amyx Collection. Sold for $1,563.
