Harlequin (Not the Romances)

I finally broke down and joined the Homer Laughlin China Collectors' Association (or HLCCA). They put out a little magazine called 'Dish' a few times a year and offer some HLCCA members-only Fiesta items that Homer Laughlin makes for them. Other than the magazine and deals, I'm not sure what the benefits are, but I don't really care. I just like looking at the pictures in the magazine. Should I even admit that?

My first copy of Dish came yesterday and after looking at it I've realized that I like Harlequin the best of all the HL patterns. I have some egg cups and a sugar bowl that I bought years ago, but now I wish I had gotten much more back when it was cheaper. Here's my wish list (pulled from google searches, because they're not in my kitchen:

Unfortunately, it's all really expensive and hard to find at sales. HL only made it for Woolworth's, so there isn't as much Harlequin out there as garden variety Fiesta. Oh, well -- that should just make the hunt even more fun.

Do you have a favorite Homer Laughlin pattern?

Those are lovely. That wasn't ever available in UK as far as I know, although I'm no expert. I love the deco style handle.

I have several pieces, and picked them up here and there at garage sales, for no more than a quarter apiece. I wish I had found more, because now it's so expensive!
