This classic Fiesta-ware pitcher from Homer Laughlin looks orange, but is what Fiesta-ware called "red". It is one of the original colors offered by this historic pottery maker in 1936. It is 6 3/8" tall and measures 9 1/2" from handle to tip of spout. It is in excellent condition...so much so that it's hard to imagine that it is at least 65 years old, as this particular design was last made in 1945. It is perfect for iced tea, lemonade, or any cold beverage. It has the impressed mark on the base that reads, "Fiesta HLC USA" It has no chips, cracks or other flaws. It is an art deco design with rings the progressively get closer together. Notice the practical and useful ice lip. I like this feature as it prevents large ice cubes from pouring out and breaking your glass.
This is a wonderful find given its condition. Please note that this "red" will not match the reds produced in later years.
