This is a 13 1/2" serving platter from Homer Laughlin China Company. It is in the Virginia Rose shape with Fluffy Rose #1 decoration. The body is a nice rich cream color with hand applied platinum trim. It measures 13 1/" long by just under 10" wide and stands 3/4" high. On the bottom it bears the "HLC" mark and "Homer Laughlin, Made in U.S.A., C 44 N 8". The backstamp indicates that it was made in March 1944 at factory N 8. There are no chips, cracks, flakes or other damage that I can detect. The platinum trim is in really excellent condition and there are only a few very light utensil marks on the surface from use.

I have several pieces from this pattern. Platters, oval and round serving bowls, luncheon plates, bread plates, gravy boat, scarce covered butter, etc. I will, of course, be glad to combine orders for multiple pieces to save on shipping for you.
As always, all reasonable offers are welcomed and considered.
Enjoy each day!
