This is a sample saucer from the presidential dinnerware service made by Lenox Incorporated. The pattern was created in 1952 for President Truman and continued in use during the Eisenhower and Kennedy administrations. The china features the seal of the president surrounded by 48 stars. Lenox began making china for the White House in 1918 -- the first American company to do so.
