Vintage Fiesta & Harlequin Homer Laughlin Pottery in the Original
Medium Green Glaze for Sale | Circa 1959-1969

The Medium Green Fiesta glaze has the distinction of being the final color added to the Original Fiesta pottery line as it struggled to maintain sales in a changing world. The '60s psychedelic era, awash in paisely patterns and elaborate decoration, left little room for the solid color mix-n-match tableware. Far fewer Fiesta pieces will be found dipped in the Medium Green glaze. The elusive color has found itself quickly elevated to stardum. The hunt for Medium Green will prove the most challenging of them all. Traditional Fiesta pieces such as the cream soup bowl, 4 3/4" fruit bowl and dessert bowl were discontinued barely after the introduction of Medium Green, proving especially hard to find. Verifying an item is Medium Green really takes an expert. The Medium Green contains less blue than the Original Green, which it can most easily be confused with. Tic Tacs and John Deere tractors have been used for reference. The last four colors of vintage Fiesta pottery, Medium Green, Red, Yellow and Turquoise, mark the end of an American era. It is hard to imagine a time when so much labor intensive craftsmanship and handiwork went into the production of our tableware. Collecting vintage Fiesta pottery connects us to this by-gone era.

Vintage Fiesta Teapot

Circa 1959-1969. In June of 1959 the Fiesta line was revamped and one last new color was added—Medium Green, considered the last color added to the original vintage Fiesta pottery line. Fiesta pottery, which had been some of the most popular American dishware since the late 30s saw a great decline in sales during the 60s, and production slowed during this time.

Harlequin Medium Green Individual Salad Bowl

Vintage Harlequin Individual Salad Bowl in Medium Green »
