Happy Heidi Vintage Fiesta

Medium Green Vintage Fiesta and Harlequin Homer Laughlin Pottery | Circa 1959-1969

The medium green glaze was the eleventh and final color developed for the original fiestaware line. By the end of the 1950s fiesta sales had slowed, patterns were all the rage, and the solid color dishware craze was nearing its end. Four final colors would make up the last vintage ensemble, with medium green being the only new color. Within months of the new colors release, standard pieces like the 4 3/4" fruit bowl, the dessert bowl and the cream soup bowl would be discontinued (making medium green examples of those pieces scarce). Today's collectors cherish the 23 pieces left in production and ambitiously hunt for them to finish their collections.
