The clean design and bright colours of the Fiesta dinnerware line - first introduced by the Homer Laughlin Co. in 1936 - caught the fancy of housewives everywhere, revolutionizing the market for tableware in the United States. Though originally offered in just five colours - red, ivory, cobalt blue, yellow and green - the number and variety of hues blossomed to include turquoise, rose, gray, forest green, chartreuse and medium green - one of the most popular and valuable. When the Fiesta line was reintroduced in 1986, after a hiatus from 1973 to 1985, collecting interest surged again. The passion for the vintage colours was reignited, and the line's new colours, including periwinkle, cinnabar and sunflower, created a stir amid a new generation of collectors. From the best of the old to the latest and greatest modern colours of the new, Warman's[registered] Fiesta Ware provides comprehensive expert advice and up-to-date pricing for the line that lent distinction to the plainest table. With more than 1,000 eye-appealing photographs, this colourful story is well told by author Mark F. Moran.
