Homer Laughlin Windsor Rose Platter -1950's White Rose and Gold Filigree Platter - Liberty Shape G51 N6
I hope we will all be reminded of the power of togetherness and the convening strength of family, friendship and good neighborliness... Queen Elizabeth II
In the 1950's royal fever was just as popular and exciting as it is today. On June 2nd,1953 Elizabeth was crowned Queen of England, but two years before that Homer Laughlin, one of America's most prolific dish makers, debuted two royal-themed patterns - Coronation and Windsor Rose. Both featured a large, blousy white rose framed by glossy dark green leaves. Coronation featured elegant embossing details against a plain pale ivory background. Windsor Rose was a touch more flashy - it featured embossed detailing as well, along with a lacy gold filigree pattern and a gold rim. The two patterns were very pretty and no doubt they were a part of active dinnertime celebrations when it came to coronation day for the new queen in 1953. The Windsor Rose pattern is much more difficult to find these days, which makes us all the more excited to offer this lovely platter in the kitchen shop. A well loved treasure by a previous owner it is far from perfect and bears some signs of use. Its ample size makes it the queen dish of the dinner party and its interesting appearance makes it the center of attention. Queen Elizabeth would approve, as it combines both elements of fairy tale and real life just like any character that bears the Windsor name.
