Vintage Fiesta and Harlequin Pottery Egg Cups for Sale | Circa 1936-1959

Circa 1937-1959: Within the first year of fiesta production, designer Frederick Rhead had created fourteen new pieces for the line. The Fiesta egg cup was among these new editions for the quickly popular dinnerware. The piece would have been slip cast and the outside rings would have been jiggered by hand. More handwork would involve shaping the foot on what is most like a woodworkers lather, rings would have then been jiggered around the base by hand - thus resulting in a wide variety of shapes and ring patterns in the Fiesta egg cups foot. Some will flare out much more than others or become thinner from extra shaping, most will be marked in the mold, although occasionally they will show up unmarked. Larger than most egg cups, the Fiesta version stands 3 1/8" tall and 3 3/8" wide.
