Homer Laughlin Company was originally located in East Liverpool,Ohio, near the Ohio River, but that plant was gradually closed by 1929 and all production afterward was done at the plants in Newell, West Virginia, where they are still located today. Homer Laughlin is still one of the largest China manufactures in the US between 1930-1950's, thousands of pieces were produced and today they are highly collectible.
The name of this pattern is Brittany Majestic Rosewood, the borders are rimmed in 22-k gold, and the outside rim is a rich burgundy highlighting groupings of pink and yellow roses with blue corn flowers peaking out of the bouquets. The back stamps on all the pieces indicate they were produced in April and November 1940 at plant N6. Homer Laughlin back stamps from 1930-1950 read , Month-Year-Factory.
This Collection consists of 6, 9" luncheon plates, a open sugar bowl measuring 2 3/4" high and 5 3/4" handle to handle. The creamer measures 2 3/4" high, and 5 3/4" spout to handle. There are some crazing on one plate, refer to photo # 2, but no chips, the gold trim on some pieces has softened and after 72 years old, it in no way detracts from the beauty and serenity of these pieces.
This is a real treasure, and I would like to share this beauty with a vintage china lover. I am sure during the period of 1940 and the condition of the world, this brought a family together sitting around their dinning room table sharing their daily adventures.
I am sure Lady Mary of Downton Abbey would have loved this as a wedding present, of course we are talking 20 years in the future.
Come and time travel with me!
