Sauce Boat, Ashtray and Sweets Comport

Here are some miscellaneous items (Sauce Boat, Ashtray and Sweets Comport) I put together by The Homer Laughlin China Company.  On the left is a Fiesta sauce boat in green.  I really love the streamlined look.  The sauce boat was produced from 1937 until early in 1969.

The middle item is a Harlequin regular ashtray in yellow.  It’s in perfect shape and I was happy to find it.  Usually when I see a Harlequin ashtray, they have chips and have been used.  I don’t think mine was ever used.  Production began in 1938 and was discontinued in 1945.

The last item on the right is a sweets comport in green.  People sometimes refer to this as a “compote,” but Homer Laughlin used the word “comport” on its price lists.  It was made from late 1935 until late 1946.Sauce Boat, Ashtray and Sweets Comport
