These 5 5/8" Berry (or dessert) Bowls were made by Homer Laughlin in their Swing shape. The Swing shape is easily recognized by its rounded edges. Pink Organdy has a cream colored background with a pastel pink trim. These are the same dishes as the Moss Rose--just minus the rose--so the patterns are very successfully intermingled. (See the last photos that show one of these bowls with a matching plate, a Moss Rose Egg Cup and a Covered Muffin. These bowls are a perfect way to create a service for two with a combination of Moss Rose and Pink Organdy in this shop.
Both bowls are without chips or nicks. Only very occasional and minor utensil marks can be found. Their pink trim is intact and the bowls remain glossy. No crazing noted. The Homer Laughlin (HLC) logo and the Swing name are is imprinted on the base. The numbered code reveals the manufacture date of 1938 on each bowl. The larger Organdy dishes, like the plates, also carry "Organdy Pastels" within the mark as these could be used as a set of all of one of the four colors available or the four pastel colors were also used together.
This listing and price is for both bowls--a SET OF TWO.
