#4029 - Jimmy Carter White House China Plate Estimate: $4,000+

Spectacular Lenox plate from Jimmy Carter's 1980 White House state service china. Evoking the Truman design, the striking white service plate measures 10.5″ in diameter, and features a huge presidential coat of arms at center, with a very wide celadon green border edged by gilt patterned with stars and stripes. Reverse bears the Lenox maker's mark: "Exhibit Collection for Lenox, Inc., Made in U.S.A., The White House, 1980." In fine condition. The special 'Exhibit Collection' plates were designated for displays of china inside the White House or to be lent to museums, or presidential libraries.

Friends of President and Mrs. Carter presented them a service from Lenox China decorated with with gold Presidential Seal and a "Carter Green" border surrounded in intricate 3D gold detail. The well-known White House China collector, Set Momjian, led the private fundraising for the project. Although the beautiful china is marked in gold—"The White House - 1980" or "President Jimmy Carter"—is acceptable. The Presidential service was completed after Carter left the White House in 1981. Therefore, all their "Official" White House China was delivered to the Library, in that no public funds had been expended. Provenance: The Raleigh DeGeer Amyx Collection.
