Circa 1936-1938: Inside bottom rings— Number 7 Vintage Fiesta nesting bowls in the original red glaze in collector quality condition are becoming exceedingly hard to find. An example good enough for my condition requirements is found once every few years at best. The sheer size of this bowl begs the question "What were they thinking at Homer Laughlin?" Even undertaking such a large piece of pottery, using the hand techniques of the late 30s, seems brazen indeed. Not only would the piece have to be spun around on a jiggering machine to be hand tooled on the inside, but it would then have to be fired once, then set to cool for days, then hand dipped (not an easy process and prone to wild mistakes), set in a kiln and fired again. But the painstaking result is worth it, for the final result is one of the highlights of the entire line. This example is in excellent condition, the glaze is wonderfully even with a minor bit of heavy application on one edge of the inside. Please note an in the making minor mold flaw on the top rim of the bowl, shown in the fourth and last photo at about one oclock. Entirely in the making, and not distracting or damaging. The inside shows no use, and the rim shows no damage, no touch-ups or repairs. This giant beauty was made 70 years ago and looks as great today as it did then. This may be one of the nicest red number sevens I've ever had the opportunity to offer. Impressed in the mold "fiesta MADE IN USA 7". Measures a whopping 10 15/16" w x 7 1/8" tall.
