This Cretan pattern was manufactured for 47 years by the Lenox China company, based in US. If traditional is what you are looking for than this pattern is what you should get. For many years one of Lenox's stalwarts, Cretan continued to delight those with an interest in the traditional, the whimsical and the nostalgic. Dominated by the gold Greek key design circling the classic cream color, this china is firmly placed in the years of it's heyday, the mid twentieth century. Turn back the clock with a pattern of yesteryear.
Our favorite Lenox Cretan pieces are the cream soup and saucer set as well as the fruit dessert bowl.
