This Wheat pattern was manufactured for 42 years by the Lenox China company, based in the US. Another long running pattern produced by Lenox to celebrate America's agricultural roots and farming heritage. Once upon a time, a large percentage of US workers were employed on farms. Although that number has significantly dropped, there is still something to be said for a pattern that brings home with stark simplicity one of the most basic staples of our diet: wheat. A similar pattern is Lenox's Harvest pattern.
Our favorite Lenox wheat pieces are the demitasse cup and saucer set as well as the salad plate.
