Antique Homer Laughlin Green Lustreware Serving Bowl circa 1915
The cottage garden; most for use designed, yet not of beauty destitute. Charlotte Smith, poet 1749-1806
Made at Homer Laughlin's Newell, West Virginia factory in January 1915, this antique serving bowl features a pink rose bouquet and a spring green lustreware rim.
As America's most prolific dishware manufacturer, Homer Laughlin, knows a thing or two about designing dishware to suit customers' decorative interests. They created thousands and thousands of dish patterns throughout the 20th century that were made to withstand the test of time and taste.
Full of cottage charm and bright color, this ultra-shiny serving bowl is a beauty for both display and serving. Light staining around the inner walls adds just the right touch of lovely aged character, giving this 107-year-old kitchen helper quite a bit of interesting depth.
- Colors include spring green, dusty pink, rose pink, mint, celery, and raspberry.
- Stamped on back with the Homer Laughlin maker's mark and the manufacturing code indicating the month, year, and pottery location in which this beauty came to life.
In gorgeous antique condition. There are no chips or cracks, but you will notice a small stress crack on the backside of the bottom of the bowl. This does bleed through to the front of the bowl. The lustreware and the bowl overall are very shiny and catch the light beautifully. The floral imagery is crisp and bright.
Measures 9" inches (diameter) x 2" inches (height)
