The Wilsons' China

Creator: Lenox Inc., New Jersey, 1918.

The official china chosen by President and Mrs. Wilson was the first to be made in the United States. Previously, most presidential china was from France. Gold and deep blue bands surround the arms of the presidential seal on the dinner plates. This china was also the first to use the arms of the presidential seal instead of the arms of the Great Seal of the United States.
