Graceful and distinctive commemorative bowl to honor the 200th anniversary of the American presidency in 1989. Made by Lenox, the oldest and most prestigious American china maker, the bowl was officially authorized by the Commission on the Bicentennial of the Constitution. The bowl is crafted of Lenox's legendary fine china and richly decorated with evocative symbols. Delicate sprays of rose-pink cherry blossoms and buds around the outside of the bowl are a tribute to George Washington, the nation's first president. There are 13 large gold stars along the inside rim to denote the original states and 40 small gold stars along the outer rim to symbolize the 40 men who served as presidents up to the bicentennial year - all in hand-applied 24 karat gold. Swag and garland motifs reflect the neoclassical Federal style that was the height of fashion in the late 18th century. The base of the bowl bears the seal of the Commission and year of issue. This limited edition bowl sold originally for $125.
