FOUR beautiful Homer Laughlin Eggshell Nautilus 6 1/8 inch Bread Plates in the Ferndale Pattern. This pattern features arrangement of small pink and orange roses, blue flowers, and wispy green leaves. Very interesting and fascinating to study.
Condition: Excellent Vintage Preowned! Nice! Very few or no usage marks. Pattern is bold and bright and Gold trim is in great shape. Doesn't get any better than this for Dinnerware that is 60 plus years old!
Of course - NO chips, cracks or crazing.
An identical pattern is also found on the HLC Eggshell Georgian Line where it is called Cashmere. In addition, in the Georgian line there is also a similar pattern called Countess. Countess is nearly identical to Ferndale and Cashmere except there is an extra Pink Rose trailing down from the center of each swag. There are other differences, but that is one way to quickly tell them apart.
The Eggshell Georgian and Nautilus Shapes were sold throughout the late 30's, 40's and 50's at Sears, Montgomery Wards and other big name departments stores.
