This individual or miniature Coffee Pot is in Homer Laughlin's Eggshell Swing shape. This shape was manufactured from 1938 to 1948. The "modern" shape was known for its graceful circle finials and handles. The tableware is strong but yet thin and so was given the name "Eggshell". The "eggshell" felt more like china than many of Homer Laughlin's earlier pieces. Perhaps the best known design in this shape was the Organdy Pastels. The Moss Rose is exactly like the Pink Organdy with the addition of the lovely blooming pink rose. Many of the pieces within the design also offer a pink rose bud on the reverse side. This piece, however, offers the rose bud design on the lid instead. This particular pot was manufactured in 1940 as per the code on the bottom.
This pot and lid were presented as a Demitasse Coffeepot but also works well as an individual Teapot. It is in Excellent Condition without chips or nicks noted in the lid or the body. It measures 5 3/8" tall and holds 8 ounces.
The matching creamer and sugar are also available in this shop (at the time of this listing) as well as several other matching pieces. You may wish to include it with a couple of (or a single) breakfast place setting(s) as shown in the last photo. The Moss Rose is easily mingled with the Pink Organdy.
