This lovely white and gold pattern is on the charming Hudson shape by Homer Laughlin. Hudson was one of Laughlin's first dinnerware shapes and was initiated in 1908 and then discontinued in 1928. There were many designs and decals applied to the scalloped Hudson shape--this is a gold floral. As was common for Laughlin, the different designs (or patterns) in the Hudson shape went unnamed.
There are five pieces in this place setting:
(1) 9" Dinner Plate
(1) 8 1/4" Salad or Breakfast Plate
(1) 7 1/4" Dessert or Bread & Butter Plate
(1) 5 7/8" Saucer
(1) Coffee Cup
As with most early ironstone pieces there are minor blemishes under the glaze that came from the manufacturer. Each of these pieces has significant crazing. A grayish sliver stacking mark is noted near the upper inner edge of the coffee cup. There is one very tiny nick on the Salad / Breakfast plate on the bottom. No other nicks or chips are noted. The gold floral pattern remains predominantly intact.
Other pieces in this pattern may still be available in this shop. Just type Laughlin Hudson into the search area.
