Homer Laughlin China Company started in 1871 as Laughlin Pottery in Ohio. Due to rapid growth, in 1903 they opened a second location in Newell, West Virginia, by 1920 all production has been moved to Newell and the Ohio plant was abandoned. They are best known for producing the very popular “Fiesta” line of dinnerware. The company is still in production and still manufactures all its wears in the USA.
Virginia Rose is not the pattern name but rather the embossing/design on the dinnerware, (mostly seen on the edge of plates and platters). The floral pattern is VR-128, we’ve also seen it called Fluffy Rose. Virginia Rose was made from 1932 to 1968 using many different decal designs.
