Happy Heidi Vintage Fiesta

Vintage Homer Laughlin Harlequin and Riviera Butter Dishes | Circa 1936-1946

The Vintage Fiesta line suprisingly did not include a butter dish. Vintage Fiesta collectors dip into the other pottery lines of Harlequin and Riviera, which in turn borrowed the butter shape from the Century and Jade Homer Laughlin lines, to add the butter shape to their collections. All examples are becomingly increasingly hard to find, especially in excellent condition. These items are considered scarce.
