The Glaze with the Thorn in Its Side
Is there a lovelier pastel in the vintage Fiesta palate than rose?
Produced for only ten years, and in lower quantity than the original Fiesta colors, collecting vintage rose can be a challenge. Rose was introduced along with forest green, gray and chartreuse ushering in a more delicate, softer look to the china.
Identifying Vintage Rose vs. Post86 RoseHolding a 1950's vintage rose Fiesta piece next to the newer Post86 rose reveals that the original glaze has a browner tint. Be careful shopping for this color, because it is frequently mislabeled or misidentified. For plates, note that the Post86 dinner, dessert and chop plates will have the three letter abbreviation code. Many vintage pieces will have saggar pin marks and a wet foot.
