Have a look at this set. Overlaid with silver and engraved. Unusual "Lenox" mark on the milk and sugar. Date anyone? I think late 19th or Lenox, USA, Bachelor tea set. Rare? Early?  P1160914

Lenox green mark….1906 to 1930 ……Lenox is an American company who made a lot of silver overlay pieces.Tea services and coffee sets.

Hi, Thanks for the response. I wondered why the teapot was glazed underneath and the sugar/milk were unglazed. Is this a made up set that has been silvered at a later date? Is the teapot a Crown Staffs item totally unrelated to the sugar and milk? It appears to be a perfect match! The silver work and engraving are all identical,(and in excellent condition!), so probably done all together. Any thoughts on this? Thanks again.

The teapot has a standard "Crown Staffordshire, England." mark. That's why I listed it as a Crown Staffs set. Obviously now it seems to be a strange mixture of things from either side of the Atlantic!Lenox, USA, Bachelor tea set. Rare? Early?  P1160916

I doubt the pottery added the metalwork, so possibly someone has bought similar pieces and added it themselves

Lennox produced lots of ceramics with silver overlay…..Crown Staffordshire did the same…..maybe not as prolific as Lennox pieces….not sure on the technique though but they were factory bought…..

The mark is one used for 1906 onwards. Apparently it is a mark that occurs on copies of Antique Porcelains. Source Godde.sn, which is a standard reference book.

1906 to 1930 as stated above……maybe crown staffs were fake marking certain pieces as Lennox….and the set is all crown staffs just with two pieces carrying a spurious Lennox mark….or they could just be a marriage of pieces made in the same period…..unless you think they are modern copies

Maybe a selection of blanks from various companies during the shortages of the Great Depression, that were glazed together and the metal applied by a 3rd party. Possibly a commission for whoever ‘A’ was, so likely to be a one-off.

If you Google Lenox silver overlay you will get masses of sets that were produced by that company exactly like those posted.Same applies for crown Staffordshire silver overlay….many companies produced items that were silver overlaid….moorcroft had silver overlaid sets for the US markets…..
