Homer Laughlin 1969 Cup and Saucer

Vintage Cups, Glasses and Mugs

In our blogs, we’ve been featuring a different promotional or corporate restaurantware product made over the years. This is another in the group of cool retro cups, glasses or mugs from our large collection. Here we’ll be sharing what we’ve learned about it and we welcome your additional input and comments.

This coffee cup and matching saucer were made by a company called Homer Laughlin in 1969. This set is part of the “Best China” brand that was introduced in 1959 as a line of vitrified hotel china. This exact design also appears on restaurantware made by Syracuse China. They call it the Longhorn Steer and Camp Fire design. Dinnerware like this is also called shadoware or stencilware because of the image transfer process.

Homer Laughlin was formed in 1871 in Liverpool, Ohio. Their most notable pattern is Fiesta dinnerware, designed in 1936. In the 1950s, Homer Laughlin changed their focus from manufacturing domestic dinnerware to producing dinnerware for the food service industry, including hotels and restaurants. They are still in business today.
