Vintage Fiesta Ironstone Homer Laughlin China Company Pottery | Circa 1969-1973

The Vintage Fiesta Ironstone line was produced for less than four full years. The line consisted of 11 pieces taken directly from the Fiesta line, 10 restyled Fiesta shapes and 6 new pieces. Dipped mostly in Antique Gold, then Turf Green and Mango Red, this short lived, limited line is finally, after 45 years, coming into fashion again. Vintage Fiesta collectors will recognize the disk pitcher, sauce boat, shakers, ashtray, plates, deep plate and cup saucer as these items were not changed. Restyled knobs (finials) will be found on the coffepots, teapots, marmalades and sugar. The casserole, vegetable bowl and mug were restyled completely. New pieces to the assortment included a sauceboat stand, a pie plate, jumbo salad, oatmeal bowl and a butter brought over from the Orbit line. All items will be unmarked, making it a little tricky for identification.

Vintage Fiesta Ironstone Sugar Bowl in Original Mango Red Glaze »

Circa 1969-1973: The original Vintage Fiesta pottery had a long run since its introduction in 1936 and it's fair to say Fiesta Ironstone was the last breath from the famous original line. Knobs, handles and colors shifted one last time and for a brief moment we had Ironstone. This example of the refashioned Vintage Fiesta sugar bowl has had its little hand applied scroll handles removed and the hand applied finial has also been replaced by a single molded version.
