This popular Homer Laughlin Pink Rose Pattern is usually referred to as Moss Rose though sometimes found under Calirose or Calarose.
This oval serving Platter is in Homer Laughlin's Eggshell 1940's Swing shape. The platter is in Very Good Condition. No chips, cracks, or crazing. The oval platter measures 11 1/4" x 9". The centered blooming pink rose with rosebud is complemented by the pastel pink trim at the edge. This pattern is like the Pink Organdy pattern, also in Laughlin's Swing shape, with the addition of the pretty pink rose in the center.
The Swing Shape is in 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.
