The Rhythm Rose Pattern crosses over several 1950's manufacturers besides Laughlin. W.S. George, Taylor Smith Taylor, and others also produced dinnerware with this centered rose. This platter is part of Homer Laughlin's Rhythm shape and also bears the name of The Household Institute as one of the makers marks. This likely means that The Household Institute may have actually applied the rose design on Laughlin's blank. This double stamped Homer Laughlin Platter is in Very Good condition without chips, nicks, or breaks. There are some minor utensil marks but the centered shadowed rose design, and the trim of rosebuds, are fully intact. The platter has a wonderfully glossy sheen and measures 13 1/2" x 10 1/2".
