This creamer in the Lily of the Valley Pattern is part of the Eggshell Nautilus line from Homer Laughlin. Eggshell was promoted as Laughlin's thin but durable dinnerware because it has the thin delicacy of china yet the sturdiness of ironstone. Manufacturing of the Eggshell line began in the late 1930's and continued to the 50's. The popular Lily of the Valley on the eggshell colored background, is trimmed in green and offers a platinum rim. One small dark smudge is noted on the creamy ivory background on one side of the creamer adjacent to the Lily design. Dated 1947, this creamer is without chips, nicks, or crazing. Excellent Condition.
