Walking on Eggshell

HLC created a new process for making dinnerware that was thinner and stronger than the product they had previously produced. The shapes and lines created in this process was termed Eggshell. The Eggshell glaze was crazeproof, meaning thst patterns would not tiny cracks as the glaze expanded over time.

The first shape produced using the Eggshell process was Nautilus. Often with floral designs and ivory borders, the Nautillus shape proved popular during its production run from 1937 to the mid-1950s.

Montgomery Ward offered Eggshell Nautilus in its 1938-39 Fall & Winter Catalog with the Daisey Field pattern. By 1944, they were offering the Rochelle, Aristocrat, Dresden, Bristol, Coronet and Gardenia patterns.
