In February 1944, the Homer Laughlin China Comany developed a line of vitrified china. The flatware was made up of plain, wide rim shapes. Several teacups were under consideration along with two styles of sugars and creamers. A casserole and teapot rounded out the assortment, however the line was never put into production.
While this particular line was never made beyond test pieces, it should be noted the factory did make translucent ware on two other occasions. The first was Chelsea from circa 1886 and the second was Triumph (and its related shape American) in 1959.
Below are examples of the translucent shape from 1944. The decals were borrowed from other lines, particularly Egghsell Nautilus and Georgian Eggshell. At first glance some make look like standard producton pieces, but they are all experimental translucent shapes and are from the collection of The Fiesta® Tableware Company.
