Vintage Fiesta, Harlequin & Riviera Homer Laughlin Pottery in Original Red Glaze for Sale | Circa '36-'42 and '59-'69

Of all the vintage Homer Laughlin pottery glazes, original red has garnered its own special spotlight. While collectors may spend years searching for elusive medium green pieces, the original radioactive red glaze has quite a following. Although most glazes have their own pesky quirks, the red glaze has its issues, requiring not only a lower temperature fire and a radioactive ingredient, but a sterile environment. A separate kiln solely for the firing of the red glaze was erected and christened "the little red kiln."

A cornerstone glaze for the original Fiesta pottery line, the original red glaze was in production for just over six years before the popular color was discontinued when the uranium used in the glaze became restricted for governmental use during World War II. While Fiesta pottery continued to soar in popularity, the red remained out of production for sixteen years, until 1959 when it was reintroduced and used until the end of the Fiesta pottery line's run in 1969 (and used on select pieces through 1973 on fiesta ironstone). The original red glaze produces the boldest of statements. It was the first planned, the most expensive to produce, and the most vibrant of the vintage Fiesta pottery lines offerings.
