dish up

June 26, 2012

It is bold, bright and popular as ever with collectors and brides to be. And last year, it celebrated its 75th anniversary.

Fiesta dinnerware is made in West Virginia by the Homer Laughlin China Company, the largest remaining domestic plate, saucer and cup maker in the United States.

The four-and-five-piece place dinnerware settings ($28.99) continue to be most popular.

Not only is the dinnerware lead-free, but it is also microwave and dishwasher safe. And with more than 50 pieces in the line, you can choose one piece for a gift or add  to your own collection – like the salt-and-pepper set ($15.99).

Fiesta’s range of colors also make it fun to mix and match pieces.

Since 1936, when it was introduced, Fiesta has come in 43 colors. In 1936, it was red. The 2012 color is flamingo, pictured below.

Over the years, top colors have included lemongrass (2009), scarlet (2004), sunflower (2001) and cobalt (1986), followed by tangerine (2003) and turquoise (1988).

A few pieces from the 75th anniversary marigold collection are still available. A deep dish pie plate is $16.99, but there are other pieces.

If interested, order before the company retires the limited-edition color on Dec. 1.
