This Antique Homer Laughlin Bowl is in Excellent Condition. This size bowl is sometimes referred to as a "Cranberry Bowl" but the 4 1/2" x 3" size holds 10 ounces comfortably and works well for any Fruit, Dessert, or your morning Cereal. The edges are nice and smooth without chips or nicks found. The bowl remains glossy, the pink carnation design bright, and no crazing or stains. The paneled bowl has an embossed pattern near it's base. A gold scrolling pattern is also found between the colorful floral design. This size Hudson bowl is somewhat of a rare find. A bowl this size is shown in a 1908 photograph from the Homer Laughlin Company that is featured on page 48 in the book "Homer Laughlin Decades of Dinnerware." There the bowl is referred to as a "30's Bowl".
This has to be the prettiest design that Homer Laughlin ever used on their Hudson shaped dishes. Laughlin produced their Hudson dinnerware from 1908 until 1928. By far, most of their designs on the Hudson were smaller and daintier floral patterns and most were done in just gold on the white background. This Pink Carnation design stands out from the rest because of its color and the size of the actual design. The pieces in this pattern that will be offered also stand out from most of the Hudson dishes because of their wonderful condition.
(The other items shown in the last photograph are now sold!)
