How to Date Homer Laughlin Dinnerware

 

In 1900 the company started using a series of numbers to indicate the month, the second single number is for the year and the third number is for the plant it was made in.

EXAMPLE: 1900 - 1909;

74L = July 1904 factory on the east end of town

1910 - 1920; the first figure = month, the next two numbers are the year and the third is the plant

1921 - 1930; a letter was used to indicate the month, the next single number was the year, and the last is the plant.

1931 - 1969; the month is a letter and the year is two digits. Plant 4=N, Plant 5=R, Plant 6 & 7=C, Plant 8=P.

EXAMPLE: 1931 - 1969;

E44R = May 1944 at plant 5
