Vintage Fiesta Ironstone & Sheffield Amberstone | Circa 1967-1972

The Vintage Fiesta Ironstone line consists of the final 20 pieces which would be created under the name "Fiesta". Two new glazes, antique gold and turf green, joined the original red that was simply renamed "Mango Red" to make up the last assortment of colors. The line consisted of 11 pieces taken from the Fiesta line, 4 restyled Fiesta shapes and 6 new pieces. This short lived limited line is finally, after 45 years, coming into fashion. Vintage Fiesta collectors will recognize the disc pitcher, sauce boat, shakers, ashtray, and plates 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 new designs. New pieces to the assortment included a soup/cereal bowl, sauceboat stand, a pie plate, jumbo salad and a butter brought over from the Orbit line. All items will be unmarked, making it a little tricky for identification.
