VTT - HOMER LAUGHLIN PLATTER


I just have one for today. It's a recent purchase of a Homer Laughlin Eggshell Nautilus "duBarry" platter. I had picked up the plates at a yard sale many, many, many years ago. They're only used on special occasions and, about a month ago, I was thinking that I'd like to expand the set to be able to use them more. Found the platter on Ebay. (The wine glasses are Villeroy & Boch, if anyone was wondering.)

Here's a close-up of the pattern.
Have fun browsing through all the oldies but goodies over at Suzanne's!

That seems to be a popular maker of platters. I have seen so many on various blogs. Yours is very pretty.

We have a set nearly identical to this, also by HL given to us from my dear mother in law. So, so pretty. Love the weight of them as well, don't you?

Oh my goodness, your platter is so beautiful. I love to collect dishes that are made in the USA. I'm just getting around to visiting the VTT blogs. It's always so fun to see what everyone is showing.
