This Poppy & Rose design 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. Crooksville China also utilized this decal design.
Though this platter is unmarked, the shape is indicative of Homer Laughlin as the original maker. This platter is free of nicks, chips, or breaks. Light utensil marks can be seen when held at an angle to the light. No crazing is found but there are two areas of discoloration. One is on the upper edge and another on the bottom. The discolored area on the upper edge is light and can be found by one of the smaller floral groups and can be seen in all of the photos of the top of the platter. The other area is only seen on the underside. The bright floral pattern remains intact and sharp. The platter measures 11 1/4" x 8 3/8".
The design of Orange Poppies, Yellow Roses, and Black Leaves by Homer Laughlin 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.
