This is a very nice and scarce covered butter dish from Homer Laughlin China Company. It is in the Virginia rose shape with the Puffy rose #1 decoration. The body is a nice rich cream color with hand applied platinum trim. It measures 9 18" long by 5 3/4" wide by 3 1/2" to the top of the lid handle. On the bottom it bears the "HLC" mark and "Homer Laughlin, Made in U.S.A., A 46 N 8". The backstamp indicates that this piece was manufactured January 1946. There are no chips, cracks, flakes or other damage that I can detect.
Add to your set or start your collection with a highly desirable piece of Virginia Rose!
I have several pieces from this pattern. Platters, oval serving bowls, round serving bowls, luncheon plates, bread plates, a gravy boat, etc. I will, of course be glad to combine multiple orders to save on shipping for you.
As always, all reasonable offers are welcomed and considered.
Enjoy each day!
