Ode to My Fair Lady

My Fair Lady is a musical based on the novel Pygmalion by Nobel prize-winning Irish Playwright George Bernard Shaw (1856-1950).  The story line involves Cockney flower girl Eliza Doolittle's (played by Julie Andrews) aspirations to become a proper lady by taking elocution lessons from professor Henry Higgins (played by Rex Harrison).  There is something very sweet, something very elementary in its message.  It is comforting to view during these times of violence and rage.
On 29 April, 1958, My Fair Lady opened in London to a sold out venue for the first month.  It was the longest running musical production in history, and is considered the perfect musical of all time!

K is for Kitchen Kraft

Homer Laughlin Pottery Company began production in E. Liverpool, OH, 1873.  The region was noted for its spectacular clay and energy supplies conducive to the establishment of many successful potteries. The 'true' china that was produced in this region virtually eliminated the need for English imports, with designs and glazes uniquely indicative of American ware.  In 1927 Roseville Pottery Art Director Frederic Rhead joined the team at Homer Laughlin, adding such patterns as Century, Fiesta, Harlequin, Riviera, Virginia, Nautilus and Brittany.  Manufacturing continued at a break neck speed catapulting Homer Laughlin into the largest pottery in the world.  Many new patterns were introduced, including the Kitchen Kraft line which was manufactured from the 1930's through the early 1940's.  In essence it was Oven Serve, often impressed with a 'KRAFT' bottom stamp. The colors echoed those of the Fiesta line: cheery reds, yellow, green and blue.  Homer Laughlin is one of the few American potteries still in existence today.                                                       Happy Hunting!
