Win HLC Dinnerware in our #plateflippers giveaway

How do you spot HLC dinnerware while you're out to eat? Just lift your plate and check for the Homer Laughlin China Co., Hall China, or HLC Fiesta backstamp (that's the logo on the bottom of the dish or cup). If it's us — and we hope it is — take a photo showing us you found our American-made dinnerware or serveware in a restaurant and you'll be entered to win dinnerware from Homer Laughlin or Hall China!


  • Follow @hlc_dinnerware on Instagram.
  • Post a picture of any Hall China, Fiesta Dinnerware or Homer Laughlin China Company dinnerware or serveware in a restaurant setting (home shots do not qualify, sorry), tagging @hlc_dinnerware in the post and using the hashtag: #plateflippers. Picture does not need to have the backstamp but must be verifiable as HLC dinnerware at the establishment.
  • The name of the restaurant and the restaurant location must be included in the post for verification purposes. (Note: Chefs/restaurateurs who enter may be contacted/featured in an HLC case study).
