Coming to you from Doc's Crocks is this wonderful Platter Featuring the "The Oldest Pottery of East-Liverpool, Ohio."
It was given out by the "East-Liverpool Chamber of Commerce" and made and stamped by "Homer Laughlin."
The number on the bottom is K 7 N 5 indicates that this platter was made in November 1927 in Newell, West Virginia at Plant 5.
This beauty features an Intricate Border of Blue Vining Framed by Fine Double Gold Trim, with a Fantastic Portrait of the East-Liverpool Pottery in Blue in the Middle. The pottery scene features a horse working the clay in a building to the left, the kiln in the middle, and the pottery works on the right. There is even a barge with stoneware on the Ohio River in the background. Measures 13" long and 9" wide.
Excellent Condition. A few utensil marks. Otherwise mint. Looks like it was used once and then hung on the wall for display.
First piece of china I have encountered with an historical scene of a pottery.
