This popular Homer Laughlin Pink Rose Pattern is usually referred to as Moss Rose though sometimes found under Calirose or Calarose. The centered blooming pink rose with rosebud is complemented by the pastel pink trim at their edge.
These four Dinner Plates are 9 1/4" each and are in Homer Laughlin's Eggshell 1940's Swing shape. The Swing Shape is from Homer Laughlin's Eggshell line. Laughlin's Eggshell dishes were created as thinner, more elegant dinnerware (more like china) than their previous pottery. The Swing shape itself is known for its rounded edges and for circular handles on the handled pieces. This lovely rose pattern is just like Laughlin's Pink Organdy pattern, also in the Swing shape, with the addition of the pretty pink rose in the center.
Two of the plates are in Very Good almost perfect condition without chips or nicks and with the typical occasional utensil marks. Two of the dinner plates do have chips underneath (see detailed description below)*. None of the four have cracks or crazing. Dinner plates in this pattern are somewhat difficult to find, so though two of these are imperfect, they are being listed for those who prefer to have a set of four.
*The two plates that have chips/ nicks have them on the bottom. They are not seen from the top. There are two tiny nicks on the under rim of one plate, the other plate has two small chips; one on each side of the plate but both on the bottom rim.
All are being listed together as a set of four for $40 but if you prefer to purchase less please email with your request.
Other items in Moss Rose (and also in Pink Organdy) are available in this shop. Please search Laughlin Moss Rose in this shop to see other matching items. At the time of this listing there are another Set of 4 Dinner Plates also available if you would like 8. I will consider splitting this set of four to add two to the others if you wish. Please note: The other four plates are priced higher as all four of those are without nicks or chips.
This price is for the Set of Four Plates pictured here..
