WILLIAMSBURG® Lenox® have introduce new stainless pattern

The WILLIAMSBURG® have Products Program and Lenox® have announced the introduction of a new stainless pattern. The pattern, Feather Edge, is part of the WILLIAMSBURG Pure Simple Today Collection of interpretive home furnishings and is based on a design adapted from a pair of English serving spoons from the Colonial Williamsburg collections.

The rococo pattern that inspired Feather Edge dates back to the early 1770s. According to Elizabeth Emerson, product manager for Colonial Williamsburg, "The wider, sloping design feature reflects a fashionable trend of the time when flatware handles were turned down toward the table and frequently were bordered with delicate chasing or feathering as we see on this pattern."
