Come see all the vintage goodies linked up for this weekly event.
Last week I shared some of the vintage Fiesta Ivory pieces from my collection.
The first five colors introduced in 1936 were Ivory, Red, Blue, Yellow and Green.
Turquoise was added in 1937 and is shown in this vintage Butler Brothers catalog
from 1939. New shapes were added over time and some shapes were dropped from
the line over the years.
You can see many more examples of early paper goods related to Homer Laughlin China
and their dinnerware lines on another one of my blogs The Pottery Papers.
I picked several different examples in Turquoise from my collection,
some were also shown in Ivory last week.
Vintage Fiesta carafe.
This is a shape that has not been reproduced in the Post 86 Fiesta dinnerware line.
From the back to front: Deep Plate (rimmed soup bowl), individual salad bowl, two sizes
of the fruit bowl, and the Tom and Jerry Mug (aka ring handled mug).
Several sizes of plates, from back to front: dinner, luncheon, salad, bread and butter plates.
The saucer shown was from the Hawaiian Daisy decalled line introduced in 1962 and
coordinated with vintage Turquoise.
2 Pint Jug
Cream Soup Bowl
Bud Vase - this shape has been reproduced in Post 86 Fiesta
Vintage creamers in the ring handled version and the stick handled version.
Vintage syrup - the only piece in the vintage Fiesta line that was not designed by Frederick Rhead. Homer Laughlin purchased the mold from the DripCut company, which also produced the lids for the syrups. The plastic lids tend to show discoloration from age. The syrups are only available in the first six colors of vintage Fiesta and Ivory is probably the hardest to find.
The vintage relish tray comes in all turquoise also, but I've chosen to show the Harlequin version. Harlequin was another line of dinnerware produced by Homer Laughlin. The base for the Harlequin relish tray was the same shape as the Fiesta relish tray, but the inserts are a different shape and size and used the Harlequin colors. You can see the difference by checking back on the Ivory relish tray shown last week.
Next week I'll highlight another one of the vintage Fiesta colors
and I hope you'll stop back to check it out.
Happy Vintage Thingies Thursday!
