Vintage Fiesta Pottery in Original Turquoise Glaze | Circa 1937-1969

The exceedingly popular turquoise glaze was released about a year and a half into the manufacturing of the vintage fiestaware line. Some shapes that were discontinued early like the 12 inch compartment plates and mixing bowl lids would never be dipped in turquoise and others like the covered onion soup bowl were being cut from production at the same time the turquoise colored glaze was being added to the mix. Luckily this inspired glaze was released and remained so popular that it was never discontinued until 1969 when the original fiestware line was retired.
