Antique Floral Fluted Platter with Violets - Lavender Purple Flowers, Green Leaves and Fluted Rim
In Victorian times, violets represented thoughts occupied with love, which makes perfect sense as to why they would adorn an antique platter like this one destined to serve a plate of food that was made with love...
In true spirit of the meaning behind violets, as both flowers and secret messages of communication, it's fun to think that this antique platter holds a lot of love for cooking endeavors as well as a lot of secrets as to where it has been and who it is. Unmarked as to maker or date of manufacture, we suspect that this might be a Homer Laughlin platter due to its similar Hudson style shape and beautiful floral transferware.
Bright, shiny and classic with its gold edge, ruffled rim and embossed detailing, this platter's delicate appearance is stunning for both wall decor and table service. Pair it with other botanical dishes that contain purple and green shades and you'll have a lovely mix and match collection that is visually interesting to play around with when it comes to unique tablescape design.

Traditionally, violets start popping up in the garden most often in Spring, which makes this platter a lovely serving piece for Easter dinner or a little season-soon-to-come salve for the soul once those gray winter days set in. Or perhaps you'll want to follow suit like the Victorians, and gift this antique charmer to a friend or family member who occupies your thoughts with love just as the language of flowers suggested.
