      were, Cool. :-)

      This looks like it could be the same Homer Laughlin pattern, but a slightly different bowl, because it doesn't have handles.

      However, it is Homer Laughlin Eggshell, has a floral pattern underneath the 22K gold, and also was made in 1941, but in a different month at Newell plant #5 (the code looks like "I41N5"):

      A month code of "I" in combination with a year of (19)41 seems problematic, because per laurelhollowpark dot net:


      During the 1930s, the letter "I" wasn't always used and by the 1940s it disappears from all HLC markings.


      So maybe that month part of the code is a malformed "L."

      Here are the FAQs from the Homer Laughlin China Collectors Association:

      About HL Eggshell patterns:

      I didn't see your pattern in there, but maybe I didn't look carefully enough.

      Whoops, this looks like it, even if the date is a bit iffy:

      Here's a luncheon service in that pattern:


      Homer Laughlin Eggshell Nautilus plates and cups decorated by George H Bowman & Son (Salem, Ohio) company in a pretty gold floral pattern. Research shows that the Bowman Company decorated and sold these ca. 1940.
