In 1989 Lenox celebrated its centennial — a landmark reached by no other American porcelain company. Its luster remains undiminished. Lenox china patterns, including Eternal (1965) and Federal Platinum (1991), consistently rank among the most popular nationwide. Newer designs, such as Winter Greetings® (1995) by the noted nature artist Catherine McClung, have been hailed as contemporary classics. And while Lenox is a leader in such current trends as transitional china and mix-and-match placesettings, it continues to employ centuries-old craft techniques, including piercing, jeweling, and etching.
In addition to the White House, Lenox tableware is at home in the vice president's official residence, more than 300 U.S. embassies, and more than half of the governors' mansions. Its giftware has been selected for presentation to dignitaries by the U.S. Congress and U.S. Department of State, among others. Its products are in the permanent collections of America's most prestigious cultural institutions, including the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York, and have been the centerpieces in exhibitions of American decorative arts. And most important, Lenox continues to be used with pleasure and given with pride by families across the country.
