The Ceramic Art Company of Trenton, New Jersey, was founded in 1889 by J. Coxon and Walter Scott Lenox and was an early producer of American Belleek porcelain. The company started out as more of an Art Studio than a factory.
In the beginning, instead of a full line of ceramics, the company produced one-of-kind artistic ceramic pieces. Walter Scott Lenox took full ownership of the company in 1894 and renamed it Lenox, Inc.The company made pieces with sterling silver overlay from 1900 to 1910 and art deco figurines and pieces into the 1920s. Shops specializing in high quality ceramic pottery carried Lenox products. These products were displayed in the Smithsonian Institution in 1897. Pot 9 1/2" widest-6 1/4" tall.
Sterling silver overlay is thick, is in very good condition as you can see, except for a small area on the bottom of the sugar bowl. Missing silver, the set is. Very good as mentioned sterling overlay is good and shines nicely as you can see in the first and last photos which I shined a bit, porcelain inner rim does have a rim chip, I don't know if collectors would actually use a rare set like this other than display purpose, in any case if so it does not impact the use integrity, nor the display integrity, as you can see the pierced tea liner sits inside nicely without any issues and the lid fits on also as would be expected.
I have photos of every angle of each piece so if you need more please inquire. This is my overview, details will be found in the photos which are as important as the verbal description given.
