An attractive small ivory with gold dish with a graceful unbroken line in the shape of a leaf with stem. The gold stamp on the bottom marks it as produced by America's premier Lenox China Co. It is also marked made in the USA.

At the time of its manufacture between the years 1952-82 it was designed to function as an individual ashtray. The stem would have served to rest a lit cigarette. However, in our day it would probably be repurposed as a handy ring dish for a dresser or vanity, or possibly as an individual nut dish to use at a bridge or mahjong gathering.

My thought for using this dish would be to add it to a mixed collection of this size trinkets dishes, so that each person at a dinner table or card table might have a unique dish for their nuts or the sauce/dip for their snacks. It's a gracious fun way to serve and to start a conversation about dishware or warm vintage customs and memories.

The leaf dish is about 5" x 2" and in pristine like new condition.
