Drawings and Concept Art by Homer Laughlin
I have been privileged to conduct research at the Homer Laughlin China Company in Newell, WV on several different occasions. On many of the dinnerware related pages on this site, I have shown photos I took of vintage advertisements, drawings and concept art at HLC. This page features a wide range of materials from the 1930s through the 1980s not used on the other web pages..
