Circa 1936 - 1951: The Fiesta egg cup was one of fourteen new editions to the quickly popular fiestaware line. Within the first year designer Frederick Rhead was busy creating over a dozen new pieces for the Fiesta ware. Larger than most egg cups, the Fiesta version stands over 3 18" tall and 3 3/8" wide. The piece would have been slip cast and the outside rings would have been jiggered by hand. More handwork would involve shaping the foot on what is most like a woodworkers lather, rings would have then been jiggered around the base by hand - thus resulting in a wide variety of shapes in the Fiesta egg cups foot. Some will flare out much more than others or become thinner from extra shaping. This example in the original green has wonderfully defined rings and a nice glaze without damage. The in the mold mark "fiesta MADE IN U.S.A" indicated a production range from the end of 1937 until original green was discontinued in 1951.
