Circa 1944: While there was never a butter dish designed for the original Fiestaware line, Homer Laughlin looked to their many other pottery collections and pulled from both their Century and Jade examples. The small quarter pound version is usually found dipped in main four colors used for the Riviera line (red, blue, green and yellow), to find an example in the original Fiesta ivory vellum glaze is a rare treat indeed. The quarter pound butter was produced on the ram press, insuring a thick, uniform body (albiet sometimes warped slightly from the pressure of the press, making slightly wobbly pieces normal). In any case, collectors will rejoice at this delightful piece, produced for only a short time, in limited numbers and colors. This one in the early the original ivory vellum glaze is the hardest colored glaze of all to find. Ivory colored glaze was used as a substitution for the original red glaze when the uranium needed for the red became unavailable during WWII. This example is in excellent condition, with no damage or signs of use. Both lid and base are stamped with the quality controllers personal number "#26".
