Vintage Red Fiesta Production
1936 - 1943 & 1959 - 1972
By

Instantly recognizable, this orange-tinted red was one of the original five colors when Fiesta was introduced in 1937. Red was the simplest choice because business demand indicated that color would be commerically successful. This continues up to today, since Scarlet Red persists as the top-selling color of Fiesta.

Radioactive Red Fiesta

It was also the most expensive color to produce. Production of red included depleted uranium oxide, which after 1943 required a special license from the Atomic Energy Commission. The Collector's Encyclopedia of Fiesta by Bob and Sharon Huxford reports that rad Fiesta from 1937 to 1943 consisted of "uranium oxide (U-308) with the uranium content being made up of about 0.7% U-235 and the remainder U-238." After World War II and the negative publicity over radioactivity, the red colorant consisted of depleted technical grade U-308 with the uranium content being made up of about 0.2% U-235, U-238 making up the rest.

This atomic recipe led to the now infamous labelling of Fiesta as radioactive, or more spcifically, radioactive red. Are these levels at all dangerous? Not al all. Surfact contact on a vintage red 9" dinner plate produces 0.5 mR/hr (milliroentgens per hour. To contrast, the radium dial on a watch produces 20 mR/hr and a chest X-Ray produces 44mR per film. According to the Huxford's "safe levels for humans workling with radiation is 20 mR/day as background radiation."

Muckracking news stories only heightened the gossip, but presentation of the science shows that using vintage Red Fiesta dishes does not create a china syndrome.

Vintage red is truly one of the most brilliant colors ever produced in the history of dinnerware. Collecting this glaze is highly rewarding.
