This is only the second one of these platters that I have found while collecting this pattern during the last 13 years. One remains in my personal collection so I will part with one. If you like the uncommon pieces in this design this piece is for you.
This very large platter is 15 1/2" by 12 5/8" and ready to hold a Turkey, Ham, or Roast! It is without chips, nicks, staining, or crazing. The surface remains glossy and shiny. There are occasional light utensil marks. The only thing found is light wear to one of the floral groupings which is shown in the photos. The manufacture date of the platter is 1948 as indicated by the number code on the back.
This floral design of Orange Poppies, Yellow Roses, and Black Leaves was introduced by Homer Laughlin in the 1930's and continued in production through the mid-1950's. This pattern is perhaps one of the most popular Laughlin designs beyond their Fiesta. The design is informally known as "Poppy & Rose" by some collectors, "Olivia" by others, tagged as "Ivora" by some, and just labeled with a number "K4124" by others.
The photo with the bowl is only for size perspective. The price is for the platter.
Most often you will find items in this pattern here in this shop because it is my personal favorite. I have many pieces that I do not list. If you are looking for some particular item within the Poppy & Rose design and don't find it within my shop it is quite possible that I have it but not yet listed so please check with my via email.
