Well, maybe not a REAL empire but a piece of Empire Green china!
A sweet customer of mine recently told me about a beautiful china pattern with a large pink flower in the center and a rich wide green border. She said it was called Empire Green and made by Homer Laughlin China. Since I love to learn about new things, I did a little research on Ebay and Replacements. She was right. It was very elegant. I had never seen the pattern “in person” until a couple of weeks ago when I found and bought 3 gorgeous pieces at an estate sale.

Empire Green was, indeed, made by Homer Laughlin but is not marked as such. The pattern was sold by the Century Service Corporation which was a part of Cunningham and Pickett. This is the mark on my platter.
Even though the china is not marked with the usual HLC mark, it can be found in HLC books and under HLC listings online.
