Here's the Good Stuff
HLC introduced Riviera in and until around sold the line exclusively through the Murphy Company. What exactly is Riviera? It's items on the Century shape using a solid colored glaze. The Riviera colors are yellow, ivory, light green, mauve blue and red. Compared to Fiesta or Harlequin, the Riviera line was more limited.
The china also cost less, because it was unmarked and weighed less. Going clockwise, our Riviera photo features an 11" dish, a open jug pitcher, juice tumbler with handle and covered sugar bowl. On rare occasions will one finda Homer Laughlin gold stamp, which actually is the decendent of an earlier line of dinnerware called Ivory Century.
Riviera has become very collectible recently. Some items have become quite rare, fetching higher and higher prices.
