These dogwood pattern dishes were made by Homer Laughlin in the early 50's. I have a service for ten and they are dated on the back either 1950 and 1951. These are the dishes we ate on every day when I was growing up. My mother must have gotten them new. Well, not these exactly. When my mother passed away and I was going through her things, I found this covered casserole and several large platters. She had given away, broken, or somehow didn't have the plates any more. I was able to get the dinner plates, cups and saucers, berry bowls and bread & butter plates on ebay. We don't use them every day at my home now, but, when we do, I can still see them on my mother's table. She would be amazed to see them again.
