Vintage Fiesta Divided Compartment Plates in Original Vintage Fiesta Colors For Sale | Circa 1936-1959

Designing the perfect divided plate took Homer Laughlin pottery designer Frederick Rhead two swings. The 12 1/2 inch fiesta divided plate was part of the original selection, but proved to be too heavy (the extra ring on the bottom of the plate had to be added for support, they were so heavy). In January of 1937, on a visit with business client Lazarus of Columbus, Ohio, it was suggested to use the 10 1/2 inch dinner plate for the pottery lines compartment plate. The suggestion was used and the 10 1/2 inch divided plate phased out the cumbersome (but now highly collectable) large versions. The popular divided plates remained in production through the end of the 50s colors and will be found in 10 of the 11 original Vintage Fiesta colors (the exclusion, of course, being medium green).
