Circa 1938-1942: The Riviera batter trays were formed in a ram press, fired once, hand dipped in glazes and placed on stilts in the kiln for a second firing. An extremely labor intensive pottery making technique that would only last into the 30s and early 40s. The Homer Laughlin "red" glaze would contain traces of uranium during this time, which would in turn raise it's production and consumer cost. On the tails of the great depression pennies were pinched and slightly less red Homer Laughlin pottery was both manufactured or purchased. Collectors of vintage solid color dinnerware will cherish the red pieces they are able to add to their collections. This examples measures 11 7/8" and is in excellent condition.
