Hello, my name is ***** ***** I am pleased to help. That style was used between 1896 and 1906 and the green coloration indicates the piece was sold as whiteware for decoration by a non-professional decorator. Lenox often supplied blanks to outside contractors to put custom or private company designs on during that era. For example, an upscale merchandise could order the style and specify what decoration they wanted, and Lenox would provide the service. That alone will not affect market appeal or value.
At present, a set from that era will generally retail in the range of $300 to $500 today, pending demand. Please note that if your set also has the marking below the "L" and Lenox of "Made in U.S.A." the set was manufactured after 1922.
***** ***** Lenox and Jonathan Coxon Sr. founded the Ceramic Art Company in Trenton, New Jersey, in 1889. The quality of wares, especially early items, is often compared to Irish Belleek.
