1930s Homer Laughlin Marigold Shape Platter - Rare Rosenau Pattern- Art Deco Green and Ivory Underglaze Fan Design
...the colors include pink, green and blue, and the effect, for all its simplicity and comparative lack of color is at once striking and very attractive... (an excerpt on Homer Laughlin's Marigold pattern shape from The Pottery, Glass and Brass Salesman August 16, 1934)
Originally called the Daisy Cup, the scalloped edge style of what would become known as the Marigold shape was first created by Homer Laughlin in the early 1930's. Featuring a pretty scalloped rim and an elegant art deco emblem style fan design (named the Rosenau pattern) it was first available in three underglaze colors - pink, green and blue against a warm ivory background. Instantly a popular seller, both the shape and fan motif were combined with other pattern decals and colors to create a pretty range of dishware that was both eclectic and colorful. The simple, early fan designs like the one featured here on this 1934 platter are hard to find now. A wonderful representation of classic art deco design sensibilities, this platter looks great with a host of dishware from different decades.
