The Genesee shape was introduced by the Homer Laughlin China Company in 1912. It has a rather extensive assortment similar to other shapes made around the same time such as Hudson and Empress.

Genesee's predecessor, Niagara, is very similar in design and both lines are sometimes confused for one another. Genesee is plain whereas Niagara has a ring towards the bottom of the hollowware and a slightly scalloped rim on the flatware. Of the two, Genesee is easier to find today. Pieces are often marked with the HLC backstamp, shape name, and date code as shown.

Shop Samples, many with treatment numbers, from the collection of the Fiesta® Tableware Company.
