Timeless Dinnerware with Quatrefoil by Lenox Giveaway (2 Winners!)

30 Shares

I have mentioned before my love of fine china.  But perhaps I should clarify that I believe it is the historical aspect of china that I find most intriguing.  As a former history teacher I find that certain patterns impart a sense of the time period they represent.  Frequently various patterns will be resurrected time and again.  Nothing really ends, right?   Such is the case with the Quatrefoil line from Lenox.

This ancient pattern which has been seen historically in Greek and Persian empires is currently experiencing a revival in certain popular television shows.   Game of Thrones, Once Upon a Time, and The Borgias have all featured the quatrefoil style.

What exactly is quatrefoil?  According to Wikipedia (honestly, it’s a reliable source!)-

In art, architecture and traditional Christian symbolism, the quatrefoil is a type of decorative framework consisting of a symmetrical shape which forms the overall outline of four partially overlapping circles of the same diameter. The word quatrefoil means “four leaves”, from Latin quattuor, four, plus folium, a leaf and applies to general four-lobed shapes in various contexts.

Frequently this quatrefoil pattern would be seen in high drama windows and balustrades in Medieval, Renaissance and Gothic Revival architecture as seen in the picture below.

Beautiful, isn’t it?   It appears I am not alone in this belief as a quick visit to Pinterest using the keyword “quatrefoil” creates a plethora of results.  Pillows, iphone cases, almost anything you can think of can be elegantly displayed with this classic pattern.

But when it comes to fine china Lenox has clearly created the epitome of taste with their quatrefoil pattern.  Lenox china is always beautiful and elegant, but this pattern is a particularly lovely design.  The dinnerware features the pattern delicately outlined in platinum and repeated in bands throughout the collection. The platinum leafs are then tied together with gold dots.  Attention to detail is what sets Lenox apart from the rest.

Whatever your interest in the quatrefoil style- attempting to recreate the look of Game of Thrones or like me, simply a lover of historically inspired items, Lenox Quatrefoil place setting creates an elegant look.  Purchase multiple place settings to entertain friends and family in this popular style (great for a wedding gift!) or purchase a few key pieces to mix into an eclectic collection.

A five-piece place setting of Quatrefoil by Lenox includes a dinner plate, salad plate, butter plate, cup and saucer.  Statement pieces for entertaining include a serving bowl and an oval platter. The collection is entirely dishwasher safe and made in America. Quatrefoil and dozens of classic and contemporary Lenox patterns are offered at Lenox.com

  7. I *love* China and collect nice pieces from estate sales. I weekly have large-ish Sunday night dinners with my friends and they think it’s a riot that I have all of these gorgeous but eclectic plate settings. I’d love to be able to invite two more to dinner 😉 These would be the highlight!

  8. I’d use the place setting for the guest of honor at bday dinners, etc.

    It’s not very inspiring, but I broke one of my mom’s nice china plates two years ago and it would be awesome to give her a nice new set….that I never touch.
    Thank you

  18. While I would use it for holidays, I also think it would be fun to just use it for a pizza dinner with the family.

  19. sara wicks says

  33. i’d serve my daughter her favorite meal, hamburgers and fries. on this service f or her upcoming 18th birthday

  34. Joyce Raymond says

    This would be perfect to actually do something nice for myself. Selfish? I don’t think so. I will cook or bake something nice for anyone, and usually do. But maybe the ONE setting tells me that now and then I should treat myself by cooking a dinner that I would really love, that I know I would never cook for me. I think I’m worth it.

  35. I’d make brunch for me and my sweetie and serve it on this china.

  36. This would be beautiful for Thanksgiving!

  37. amy marantino says

    i would make a nice dinner for my grandmother

  38. I would use it to serve a special dinner for my parents anniversary coming up:)

  39. Everyone always says to save the china for special occasions but I’d use it everyday. I think we should use nice things now while we’re here to enjoy them. I wouldn’t put it in the microwave like I do my other plates of course. I’d handle it with care but I’d use it daily. It’s just to pretty to be put away. That’s my opinion. Thank you for the beautiful giveaway!

  40. I would use this lovely china for a special dinner for two. 🙂

    vgsaxon(at)gmail(dot)com

  46. for valentine’s day or other special dinners with just the 2 of us

  47. April Clark Trent says

    I would use it to host a Christmas in July with my parents, in-laws, brothers, sisters, etc. We are a little spread out and have so many different commitments that we all try to honor during the holidays, that it makes it difficult to get everyone together at the same time. Plus, any reason is a good reason to have great food surrounded by the people you love the most. Eating off fine Lenox China would make it extra special.

  48. I would use it for romantic picnics…carefully of course!

  49. I would use it for a summer party with several friends who have lost their moms in honor of our mom’s…to celebrate the beauty that they added to our lives.

  50. matthew b says

  51. Katherine D. says

    tcogbill at live dot com

  53. for my daughter!

  54. Roxanne Ellis Raymond says

    We are going to start family dinners once a week with extended family. Having nice dishes would make it more special

  55. Carrie Phelps says

    I would gift this to my son & fiancee in hopes they would use this for romantic dinners or perhaps on those nights they come together as one to make wedding plans.

  56. Leslie Galloway says

    Okay, first I have to say that the quatrefoil is my absolute favorite shape! Our china now (which we purchased at an estate sale) would go so well with this. It’s white with a simple silver rim. So I guess the guest of honor at each china-worthy event would get to have the quatrefoil set while everyone else ate off the plain plates. Seems like a plan to me!

  57. I’d use it on Sunday when my son comes to dinner with us, he moved out last year but we told him he had to come over every Sunday for dinner otherwise he couldnt move out (LOL) he agreed and has continued to come every Sunday so I usually make a very nice meal for him since we dont see him often with his work schedule
