Vintage Red

Vintage Red Fiesta 
Although it appears to be a vibrant "orange", this is the iconic vintage RED Fiesta dinnerware in some of my favorite shapes. Only one of these shapes was reproduced in contemporary Fiesta beginning in 1986 and was produced for a number of years before being discontinued. Can you pick out that piece?

You can visit the Vintage Fiesta Database to read more about these items.

Carafe

Covered Casserole

Demitasse Cup and Saucer

Sweets Compote

Thanks so much for stopping by to visit!

    A RED-LESS DAY?

    “Oh, my goodness, oh, my dear!
    Don’t you think it’s very clear
    That a red-less day’s a drag?”
    Said Ms. Foxy Scarlet Hag!

  4. What a rich and vibrate color your Fiesta wear is. I have seen a lot of it, but not the piece in your top photo.

  8. I have a question..I thought larder and pantry were one in the same. Is this not right?
    I noticed on another blog using quote from B.Potter that mentioned both a larder and pantry.
    Thanks, sweetie..

  15. Candy,
    I just spent way too much time on your blog catching up. I LOVE your blue scape. The checked flatware is so adorable.
    What a great time I had!

  18. That demitasse cup/sauce was reintroduced in the early Post86 Fiesta colors! And there was a new version of the casserole, but minus those beautiful deco handles.

    LOL bj - you do need to get your hubby to build you a mirror!

    Thanks so much to all of you for dropping by!
