Made by the Ceramic Arts Company, Lenox Mugs are genuine works of Art. This mug is not only made from thin porcelain, the entire scene on the exterior is hand painted. No two Lennox mugs are identical, but they are all gorgeous! This particular example features a lady golfer and her caddie. Lady golfers were not often featured on these mugs.
The Ceramic Arts Company was founded in Trenton, New Jersey in 1889. Lenox took control of CAC around 1895 and changed the name to Lenox China Company in 1906. This example bears the CAC Lenox mark, dating it circa 1900.
The mug is solid and will display with sparkle and charm. It can also serve in practical ways, such as a pencil holder in an office or on a desks. The gold leaf around the rim has worn off across part of its length, as this was somebody's favorite mug in years past. There's another practical use!
The Ceramic Arts Company was known for its high quality, and today Lenox pieces are
treasured far and wide for their original artwork and sheer beauty. Its the shine, color, and artistic creativity of beautiful antique golf-themed ceramics that can add serious sparkle to any golf display or collection.
