Manufacturer: Buffalo China
Pattern/Body: Colorido Lamelle
Rim pattern and gazelle pattern: unknown
Date of platter: 1930s
Notes: Lamelle is French for laminated. On March 15, 1932, Buffalo Pottery was granted US Patent 1849272 for this ceramic-making process in which two or more layers of clay are used to form the appearance of an inlay.
Lamelle pieces are most often two-color combinations with a contrasting pin line inner-rim border – usually white or ivory – with another laminated color.
In this case, the laminated colors are "Olde Parchment" yellow and white with the addition of a dark red or burgundy leaf or vine border, dark red pin stripe and in the well, a stylized gazelle with a leaning pine or fir tree.
