Lyric and Essex by Knowles
The Lyric and Essex shapes were first produced by the Edwin M. Knowles China Company in 1952. Chronologically, they come right after Accent and roughly two years before Criterion. Lyric and Essex make use of the same handleless sugar and creamer. The teacup comes from Accent. When coupe flatware is used, the shape is called Lyric. When rimmed flatware is used, the shape is called Essex.
