Circa 1938-1944: 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 will be found dipped in the Riviera colors of Harlequin blue (mauve), yellow, original Fiesta green and original Fiesta red. 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 example shows light wear, but is without damage, touchups or repairs. Please note a characteristic small pop on one side of the lid. Both the base and the lid are stamped with the quality controllers personal number "26".
