Vintage Fiesta and Harlequin Homer Laughlin Pottery in Original Turquoise Glaze for Sale | Circa 1937-1969

It is highly probable that the turquoise glaze had already been formulated at the initial release of the Fiesta pottery line in January of 1937, but it wasn't selected as one of the initial five colors. Designer Frederick Rhead describes the glaze selection process in an article for Pottery and Glass Journal: "The final selection of five colors was a more difficult job because we had developed hundreds of tone values and hues, and there were scores which were difficult to reject.... The fifth color was the hardest to crack.... We eliminated all except two colors: a rich turquoise and a lovely color we called rose ebony. But there seemed to demand a quieting influence; so we tried an ivory vellum..." It's hard to believe this rich turquoise glaze would be shelved for a year and a half, barely making its way onto the Fiesta covered onion soup bowl and never the mixing bowl lids, cake plates, or 12" divided plates. Luckily, the brilliant turquoise blue didn't stay shelved for long and soon began covering the masterful vintage Fiesta pottery shapes. Turquoise easily established itself as a front runner in the mix-n-match tableware sensation and along with yellow remained in the selection until the original line ceased production in 1969.

Due to their small size they were also one of the very few Fiesta items that were not marked.
