Bright colored Fiesta dinnerware was first produced in 1936 and was an immediate success. Housewives could now set tables with bright colored dinnerware for a bright breakfast, gay luncheon or cheerful dinner. After 1960, sales begin to drop and Fiesta was not produced for many years. For the 50th anniversary of the introduction of Fiesta dinnerware in 1986, Fiesta was reproduced and called “Post 86”. Throughout the late 20th century and up to today, the original manufacturer, the Homer Laughlin China Co. has continued to produce many new Fiesta colors.To make room for new colors, Homer Laughlin retires at least one color per year. Collectors continue to amass large collections of vintage, Post 86 and current Fiesta colors.
I’m a Fiesta Turquoise Wall Clock
I’m a classic Fiesta dinnerware color: Turquoise! I have the Fiesta logo Dancing Lady and the iconic Fiesta brand name on my face. My item number is 0473. We were introduced in 1993 and discontinued in 2001. I think I’ll look fantastic on a wall. I’ve never been used but with a couple of batteries, I should be very good at letting you know when it’s “Fiesta Time”. For Fiesta collectors, that’s all the time!
