Lenox Ming Temple Complete Dinnerware Set For 8; 40-Piece Dinnerware Service
An incredibly rare find! This is an original and complete wedding china set for 8 in the very popular Ming Temple pattern introduced by Lenox in 1950 and produced until 1966. This dinnerware set is what you use to truly impress your guests as the design is quite striking and unique.
The set consists of 8 five-piece place settings for a total of 40 pieces.
As America's appetite for high-quality wedding china grew, Lenox started using full-color lithographic decals and Ming, introduced in 1917, was one of the first 2 patterns to launch and would consistently sell out for the next 46 years. The color decals created an identifiable pattern, which gave a hostess an immense satisfaction of knowing that her dinner guests would recognize the Lenox brand, as well as her sophistication in selecting it.
The Lenox Ming Temple pattern features good fluted rims and an exquisite design of pink/purple floral branches along the rims and yellow butterflies in the center against a classic Lenox white background.

All orders ship within 3-5 business days after the order and payment is received but slight delays may occur during high season and holidays.
All orders ship out of our San Diego, CA warehouse and those in the IS will arrive within 2-9 days, depending on the shipping method selected.
We use USPS and UPS as our preferred shipping carriers as we're able to use discounted commercial shipping rates. At the time of shipping, we will select the most cost efficient and expeditious option for your order (USPS Priority/UPS Ground or 3 Day Select) - the less a package is in transit, the better chances of a safe arrival are.
Our website is integrated with USPS and UPS which means that shipping costs are automatically calculated during checkout based on your shipping address and size and weight of the box. That said, calculations are not always precise, particularly for multi product orders. If final shipping costs end up being less than what you paid, we will refund you the difference and if it ends up being more, we will bear that cost.
We do not charge any mark ups, handling fees or shipping insurance costs to our customers. We provide complimentary shipping insurance on all orders to protect you against damage that may occur during transit. We have safely shipped hundreds of fragile orders and we expertly package the porcelain and glass orders so you can rest assured that your order will arrive to you safely.
Due to significant new tax and customs implications as a result of Brexit, we are suspending all of our deliveries to the UK effective January 1, 2021. We apologize to our UK customers but as a small business we are unable to take on the large amount of requirements.
