Vintage 1940s Georgian Eggshell Coupe Bowl by Homer Laughlin - Set of Two
Throughout the 1940s and 1950s, one of Homer Laughlin's most popular dish designs was the Georgian Eggshell. A body and a design style - not a pattern name - HL's Georgian Eggshell dishes came in complete sets featuring a variety of different patterns and colors. This pair is from an unknown pattern but it is very similar in color and floral arrangement to their popular Chateau pattern. Made in 1943, this pair feature a pastel turquoise rim and are embossed with a dotted and dashed edge, a gold filigree inner stripe and a bright center floral bouquet.
Bursting with an easter egg color palette, these two bowls contain shades of robins eggs blue, mint green, pale pink, pale tangerine, butter, and sky blue. The pastel turquoise rim on one bowl has faded into a more subtle shade giving it a lovely shabby chic aesthetic. when placed side by side next to the brighter rimmed bowl it creates quite a lovely and visually interesting table setting full of authentic charm that only time and love can create.
Here in the Vintage Kitchen, we are especially impressed by how pretty these two looked with a variety of other floral dishes offering very carefree mix and match appeal and all sorts of easy-breezy decorating options.
