The Homer Laughlin China Company has marked their wares with a wide variety of backstamps.Shown to the right is an early Laughlin Brothers mark on a Cable shape sauceboat.Although the company started in the early 1870s, marks were not given any type of dating system until around 1912.Wares from this time period offer the least amount of confusion with respect to backstamps.It is the only decade that uses numbers for the months and single numbers for the years.
