$12.00 $15.00

A cream pitcher circa 1949 from Homer Laughlin in their Virginia Rose shape and Springtime pattern. In very good vintage condition, the creamer has no chips, cracks, or crazing. The gold trim is intact too.

The creamer measures 3.25 inches tall and 6 inches wide from handle to spout.

Homer Laughlin started in 1871 by Homer and Shakespeare Laughlin, brothers from East Liverpool, OH. The company continues on today as one of the few Ohio potteries that have survived changing industry practices, the wars, and the decline of American dinnerware because of inexpensive imports.
Woolworth's was one of its main customers.

Frederick Hurten Rhead was hired as design director in 1927 until 1942. Rhead designed Virginia Rose as well as the several Eggshell shapes. Rhead's most famous accomplishment, however, was Fiesta.

By 2002, ownership of the company was shared by third, fourth and fifth generation members of the Wells and Aaron families. To consolidate resources Joe Wells III and his sisters, Jean Wicks and Elizabeth McIlvain, purchased the interests of the other stockholders. When Joe stepped down, his sister Liz McIlvain took over as president in 2012. Her position with the company is the first time there has been a woman president in the company. And, the first time the presidency was passed between siblings instead of from father to son.

Since the re-organization, the company has continued to grow and produce quality, American made china and provide jobs for potters of the Ohio Valley.

Frequently Asked Questions

Very Good Vintage Condition

I use the term "very good vintage condition" for pieces that are in excellent condition. Yet please remember that these items have mostly been used before; so they will have a few imperfections. Anything that is obvious will be noted in the description and/or pictures.

Good Vintage Condition

When the description uses the term "good vintage" condition; it means that it does have some flaws (and should be noted in the description). Less than perfect, but still in good shape.


We do offer refunds, but the item will have to be returned to us before the refund is completed. We do NOT pay for return shipping. Please, let us know if you have any issues, we will be glad to discuss them with you to determine an outcome.

Customer Service/Communication

We will return all messages within a 24 hour period, but we do strive to reply as quick as possible.

Breakage in Shipping

Jimmy works really hard to ensure a safe delivery of your package. But we have had damage through the shipper in the past. If you would please send us a picture or two of the damage box and/or its contents. We can file for insurance and will refund the costs of the items.

What does vintage mean?

Vintage means an item is at least 20 years old or at the most 99 years old. Once it is 100 years old, you can call it an antique. Please be aware that you are purchasing a used item. We keep trying to improve our descriptions and pictures to point out chips or dents or other issues a piece may have.

Saying that, there may be small vintage wear that go unnoticed. I do go over the piece when I buy it, wash it, take its picture, write its description or weigh it. Yet still, sometimes I miss it. The right light will show scratches on dinner plates for example. One time, you could see a crack in a piece of pottery in the photograph that you could not see when looking at it.

Thanks for dropping by.
