Vintage Fiesta 6" Dessert Bowls in Original Colors | Circa 1936-1960

The original Fiesta dessert bowl was initially thought of as a fruit bowl by its maker, designer Frederick Rhead. The outside rings were formed by the mold while the inside rings were then hand jiggered, which we see evidence of with the variation of the inside rings (a special treat is to find five, rather than the normal 4 inside bottom rings). A popular bowl that was part of the original release in 1936, the dessert bowl has the distinction of being the last item discontinued from the line in 1960 before Fiesta was restyled into Ironstone in 1969. Available in all colors, but exceedingly rare in the Medium Green glaze which was introduced in 1959, less than a year before the dessert bowl would be discontinued.
