Vintage Fiesta Pottery: Special Promotional Campaign Pieces | Circa 1940-1952

The items produced for the first Vintage Fiesta promotional campaign included a covered "French Casserole," a four piece stacking "Refrigerator Set," borrowed from the Kitchen Kraft line, a "Sugar Cream and Tray Set," a "Salad Set," which included the large yellow unlisted salad bowl with a fork and spoon, also from the Kitchen Kraft line. The ambitious campaign additions didn't stop there, a three piece promo casserole made up the "Kitchen Set," consisting of a green casserole bottom, with a red lid and yellow pie plate, and finally a raffia-wrapped handled metal casserole holder for a regular Fiesta chop plate. The exhuberance at Homer Laughlin must have been great, as they resurrected the smaller 30 ounce disk pitcher and the tumblers designed for Kraft to put together a "Juice Set". The popular juice set found itself with a full wardrobe, as it was offered in a variety of ensembles. The juice pitcher was dipped in red for a premium set from "Old Reliable Coffee". Then again, in 1948, with the release of the "Jubilee" glazes, the juice pitcher found itself touting Celadon green and two each of the tumblers in mist gray, shell pink and cream beige completed that set. Finaly, once more, the last of the vintage promo juice combos would be used for Woolworth's "Rhythm" line. The '50s Vintage Fiesta gray glaze would be used for the juice pitcher, and two each of tumblers in Harlequin yellow, chartreuse, and forest green would round out the last vintage Homer Laughlin Juice Set promotional ensemble. This last "Rhythm" based version is considered rare. Collectors will have a hard time procuring one, let alone two, of the tumblers in these colors. The popularity of these sets is obvious, as shown by their long running success, in a wide variety of glazes from the early 40s to 50s.

Circa 1939: The standard Fiesta juice set included the yellow pitcher, but Old Reliable Coffee, a division of Dayton Mills Spice Company, wanted to offer their own premium version of the popular set and splurged with the addition of the more expensive red glaze for their ensemble. Three coupons and $1.19 bought this set in 1939! Because far fewer of the juice pitchers were dipped in the glorious red glaze, it is a delightful rarity to find this desirable juice set today.
