Trying to identify a Homer Laughlin pattern
by Sid Meyer
I have a set of dishes that belonged to my grandmother. The marking on the bottom is K 44 N 8. I know that this means that it was made in November of 1944, but I can't seem to identify the factory or the pattern. The pattern is very, very similar (almost exact) to the floral pattern of "Dresden," but the applied gold pattern is more intricate than the photos of the Dresden pattern. There is a solid gold band around the rim. The rim is scalloped, but not evenly. The large scallops are decorated with the Dresden floral pattern. The smaller scallops are "embossed" in the china itself in a fan pattern. The interior has a second gold ring that could best be described as a filigree pattern.
