Walter Scott Lenox and his partner, Jonathan Coxon Sr., started a porcelain making business called Ceramic Art Company back in 1889, in Trenton, New Jersey.Walter Scott Lenox took full ownership of the company in 1894 and renamed it Lenox, Inc.

The company started out as more of an art studio than a factory.

Instead of a full line of ceramics, Lenox produced one-of-kind artistic ceramic pieces.

Lenox uses two sets of numbers separated by a slash on the stamp of its products. The Lenox pattern code includes a letter and a number that indicate the date and sometimes a second letter that indicates a special-ordered background color on the piece.

In the late 1940s, Lenox recognized a need to streamline production and discontinued many patterns.

Famous artists of the time were hired to design the plates.

After the success of the plates, Lenox started to produce complete dinnerware sets.

In 1953, Lenox began to stamp a gold wreath on the backs of its pieces instead of a green wreath.
