Compounding the scarcity issue is the fact that Homer Laughlin produced exclusively for one department store - Bloomingdale's. The rewards of collecting Sapphire Fiesta ware will be as rich as the final price paid.
The Sapphire color looks very similar to the vintage blue glaze, because it is that same luminous, shiny blue. Keep in mind that there was far, far more vintage blue Fiesta produced, and also that the sapphire items will fall under the same identification rules for distinguishing vintage pieces from the post-86: The newer sapphire pieces will be slightly smaller and heavier because of the vitrified clay body. Sapphire was produced before Homer Laughlin initiated the H mark in to distinguish a newer line.
