A recent blog visitor asked what we know about these embossed-rim plates, which she picked up at the HLC outlet a couple of years ago. She got them in Shamrock (above), Persimmon and Sunflower (see rim details below). The plates carry the standard HLC backstamp. A couple of Board members recall seeing these at the outlet as well, but we don't know their origin. Any thoughts, folks?
UPDATE 3/22/09: HLCCA Boardmember Jerry Lefever tells us that this shape is called Vintage, and is based upon a vintage HLC shape called Theme. It seems to be most commonly found in white; the origin of these colored-glaze pieces is not completely clear.
