I have 4 platters...

I have 4 platters by Nautilus #A 55 N 8. They have a gardenia pattern in the center and are otherwise plain. I cannot find them anywhere. Can you help me?

Expert's Assistant: I always love having an appraiser look at my stuff. Sometimes its turned out to be surprisingly valuable. Tell us what else you do know and the Antiques Appraiser will be able to better assist you.

The platters are 11 1/2" x 9" and are oval

Expert's Assistant: Is there anything else important you think the Antiques Appraiser should know?

There is a small "handle" at each end with little scroll works in them

Ask Your Own Antiques Question

Thank you for your patience. The photos did help these are Homer Laughlin china Nautilus #A 55 N 8 platters in the Gardenia pattern. The platters were produced in January of 1955 at the #8 plant in Newell, West Virginia.

platters are 11 1/2" x 9" and are oval with scrolled handles on ends- these have a value of 32.00-38.00 each if in excellent condition.

Thank you and if I may be of further service please let me know as I am always happy to help Have a wonderful weekend ahead.
