When first publihed this listing includes a total of 24 Lenox china plates -- 12 dinner plates and 12 salad/dessert plates in a pattern called "Bradford" that was active open stock from 1939 - 66.
The pattern consists of Lenox's most popular ivory colored bone china background decorated with a an elegant and sophisticated cluster of stylized rosy red tulips with gold foliage. The design is accented with a beautiful wide band of gold trim combined with a pin striped band of the rosy red color of the tulips.
The Bradford pattern is a beautifully versatile pattern whose festive rosy red and gold color scheme works gorgeously for any season --- from the season of Thanksgiving, Christmas, New Years, and Valentines themed celebrations to the spring and summer seasons when rosy red tulips and other colorful flowers are in bloom outdoors.
The plates could create an elegant formal look on a white tablecloth, but could also easily be dressed up or down, or varied in seasonal effect, by using other colors and types of linens and/or mixing in some coordinating but not identical plates and serving pieces in coordinating colors and patterns. Today's trend definitely favors creating your own individual look for your entertaining, and these high quality Lenox plates are well suited to help you do that.
