Vintage Fiesta, Harlequin, and Riviera Platters, Chop Plates (15" and 13"), and Oval Platters for Sale

Both the thirteen and fifteen inch Fiesta chop plates were part of the original release in mid-1936. The design remained consistent with all of the Fiesta plates, decorated with bands of concentric rings radiating out from the center. These large round platters were meant to serve up steaks and chops—thus the name. Chop plates were made upside down on a jiggering machine. The bands of concentric rings were tooled in as the plates spun around. Each plate was fully glazed and put on sagger marks in the kiln for firing, thus the three stilt marks on the back of all plates. These little chips out of the glaze are mostly unavoidable and simply part of the pottery making methods. Most Fiesta pottery (but no Harlequin or Riviera) versions will be glaze stamped on the bottom "GENUINE fiesta HLCo USA." Some examples, perhaps early variations, will not be marked and some early examples will have extra sets of thick rings on the bottom which were either for stability or to fit over a lazy susan, either way the abundance of bottom rings is a delight to ponder and it's a joy to see your favorite vintage color spread over the largest piece of the entire fiesta pottery line— the 15" chop platexxx
