"Green" or sometimes referred to as "Light Green."

Tea Cup and Saucer, Bread and Butter, Salad, Luncheon, and Dinner plates.

Nappie Bowl

After Dinner Coffee Cup and Saucer

Tom and Jerry Mug

Bud Vase

Covered Onion Soup Bowl

  14. Deb - I've been collecting for 20+ years!! Haven't added much in the last 6 or so years.

    Be sure to check out the Shapes and Colors Database for more pieces that I may not have showcased here on VTT.

    Coloradolady - Sounds like you may have picked up some vintage Rose, one of the 50s colors, will look forward to seeing it!

    Hope to see you all again next week for another VTT!

  21. Wow!! This is my first visit to your blog. What an amazing Fiesta collection and I LOVE your vintage tablecloth database!!

  22. Incredible collection...thank you for sharing! That Tom and Jerry mug reminded me of something and I had to chuckle. Recently, my mom and I were going through my great-grandma's cookbooks and recipes. There were, seriously, like 20 copies of the same Tom and Jerry recipe all throughout the boxes we were going through! Guess she wanted to make sure she'd never lose it! :)

  23. Thank you all for stopping by for this week's vintage Fiesta post!

    BlueRidge Sherry - Fiesta collectors often refer to the whole mixed up color palette as the "exploded clown" look! LOL I like it both ways, but find that using one color really allows you to see the shapes and appreciate the details better.

  24. I love looking at your collection in every way you display it. I have on recently started on the vintage part of my collection. I'd like to share an amazing deal I found on the bulb candle holders in this green. I paid $2.99 for each (2) at one of my favorite thrift stores. I was on a "dish high" for days. LOL

  25. GREAT deal Monica! With the hard economic times right now, it is a good time to be adding to a vintage collection. There are some really good deals just waiting for you.

  26. I have NEVER been able to find a fruit bowl in any color, I want one! LOL. Great collection of light greens.

    ReplyDelete
  27. The fruit bowls aren't something you see everyday and some of mine took longer than others. If I remember correctly, it was the Ivory one that was the hardest to find.
