Lenox Hotel

Manufacturer: Maddock Pottery Co.
User: Hotel Lenox
Date: pre-1920
Notes: In 1900, the hotelier and impresario Lucias Boomer (best known as the owner of New York’s Waldorf - Astoria) began work on what was to be the most luxurious hotel in New England. Eight months and $1,100,000 later, The Lenox -- the tallest building in Boston, Massachusetts at the time -- opened its doors in the heart of Back Bay at Boylston and Exeter Streets.

According to Larry Paul, this pattern was most likely a part of Maddock's Lamberton line of china and might also have been manufactured when Scammell took over ownership of the factory.

The floral topmark features a banner reading "En la rose je fleurie" which translates to "I flourish in the rose," a motto for the Lennox family, although the hotel spells its name differently.
