LuRay was produced by Taylor Smith & Taylor from 1938-1961 in four colors: Persian Cream, Windsor Blue, Sharon Pink and Surf Green (Chatham Gray was added later on). Facing competition from Homer Laughlin's brightly colored Fiesta Ware, Taylor Smith & Taylor released this pastels line in the spring to appeal to those getting married. They also made sure that the plates were stamped which makes it easier for collectors today.
What I love the best about this oval platter is the fun handle detail--functional and beautiful as well!
