Trying to identify a Homer Laughlin pattern

by Sid Meyer
(Central Florida)

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.

N8 Identification NEW
by: Hal D

The N8 designation means that it was produced in the Newell, West Virginia plant, and the K44 means it was made in October of 1944.

Don't try to get the factory to help. They have an idiot there who won't even respond to your query.

Saucer NEW
by: Irene

I have a cream colored saucer with gold thin trim around upper edges. FFC-1 is the number, it is a Homer Laughlin. Yet this is a saucer with a glued orangy-peach fake floral piece with green stems centered in the middle. The center piece sits about 1 1/2 foot high. Was this produced by HLC this way? I've had it for over 20 years. It sits in the middle of my table.

Homer Laughlin Pettern NEW
by: Anonymous

I have several China pieces from my Great Grandmother. On the bottom of each piece, it says Homer Laughlin. There is also a symbol that resembles a Spruce Tree. On the middle size pitcher, there is numbers::2366. Very clearly in gold. The pattern is supposed to be called: Purple Violets, Gold Flowers and Trim. I want to find the wash basin that goes with the larger Pitcher. I have taken several pictures that I could forward to you, if that would help. Thanks, Harry J.
