Vintage Fiesta Tom and Jerry Mugs for Sale | Circa 1936-1969

The ring handled mug, that has come to be known as the "Tom and Jerry" mug came in all eleven vintage colors. It's surprising that no other handled tumbers were released with the vintage fiesta line. There were of course the teacups and saucers, and the water and juice handless tumbers, Harlequin also had teacups and water tumblers, and the great handled cups used for the Riviera line, but only the ring handled Tom and Jerry mug was stamped Fiesta and accompanied the original vintage fiesta tableware line.

Vintage Fiestaware Juice Tumblers

The fiesta juice tumblers have a long and torrid history at Homer Laughlin. Originally commissioned by Kraft cheese, and labored over with extensive changes in size and shape, the tumblers were eventually repurposed and used to complete a juice set for the 1940s fiestaware promotional campaign. The first campaign used the six original fiesta colors, with a later 75th anniversary campaign using the Jubilee colors of mist gray, rose, beige and shell pink and a final campaign using the Rhythm colors of harlequin yellow, chartreuse, forest green and gray. These Rhythm color juice tumblers are exceptionally rare. None will be marked, but all will have the bands of rings around the top edge.
