Here is my collection of juice pitchers from the Homer Laughlin China Collectors Association. You have to be a member in order to get one. The HLCCA introduced the pitchers in 1999 and used the 1930s to celebrate the arts and lifestyles of the time. I don’t have them all, but here is what I do have:
Left to right on the bottom:
- 1933 pitcher in black, depicting The Century of Progress Exhibition from the 1933 World’s Fair.
- 1935 pitcher in plum, features “Dish Night at the Movies.” Theaters gave out free pieces of dinnerware to bring in more patrons.
- 1938 pitcher in scarlet, features the New York Central System’s 1938 20th Century Limited Train.
- 1940 pitcher in ivory, features Uncle Sam representing the unity of our Nation during the difficult years.
And left to right on the top row:
- 1934 pitcher in periwinkle, is a tribute to transoceanic travel.
- 1936 pitcher in tangerine, features Frederick Hurten Rhead, Art Director for Homer Laughlin China and designer of Fiesta dinnerware.
- 1939 pitcher in cobalt, features the 1939 New York World’s Fair and 1939 Golden Gate International Exposition, San Francisco Bay.
