The Yellow Rose of Homer Laughlin and Cunningham and Pickett

Yellow Rose and Golden Rose

Knowles Salem Gold Rose bread & butter plate and Homer Laughlin Yellow Rose tea cup for Cunningham & Pickett

Back in March, I posted about the above tea cup and lamented I had been unable to identify it.  In a serendipitous moment, I found it.  The Knowles Salem Gold Rose saucer is one I have had for a while, and generally use to hold a candle.  I ran across the pattern a few days ago and had one of the aha moments: I have that!  In finally having time to look it up, it was described as having a gold filigree border, so I decided to search again for the cup adding that descriptor and voila! Enter sipping from Yellow Rose.

Homer Laughlin manufactured dishes for distribution by Cunningham and Pickett between 1938 and 1969.  Among them were the yellow rose design, and the spring violet design, both of which were discussed in the earlier post, albeit without a name.
