Thelma I would like to ask you if we could please use the Fiesta Ware backstamp in our CL Backstamp Gallery ? It's great to see you posting photos cheers
I'm not sure what you mean by the colourway name .... I have seen the coloured banded ware in other colours too.

backstamp

Post  Thelma on Sun 14 Nov - 20:43

You are most welcome to use the backstamp photo Ev. I only asked for a name because most of the CL has a name of some sort. That colour is the only one I have seen like that, do you know what years it was produced?

Thank you Thelma Cool
The Fiesta Ware backstamp is from the 1950's and 1960's according to Valerie Ringer Monk. I have seen the same bands on other ware but in different colours .... Red/Green/Yellow/Grey with the Fiesta Ware backstamp. Folk seem to call the design Fiesta - but I haven't seen anything yet to substantiate that.

Found a piece about Fiesta Ware in Val Monk's book.
During the late 1950's bowls were hand painted with bright bands of colour.
The range included a dinner set, bowls and a condiment set.
The colour was applied on top of the glaze and was easily damaged.
Later the bands of colour were applied with underglaze colours.

Perhaps your piece is from the later stage as the glaze will protect the colour -
and yours looks in perfect condition.

The plates I have have bits of colour missing from them, the bands are definitely overglazed. Sad A shame because the carousel pattern I have is underglazed and has stood the test of time. Incidentally, I have two different Carousels, the first one has bands closer together and backstamp is in cursive writing, the second style has more defined bands and backstamp is different.

Fiesta Ware Small Beehive Bowl

Post  Jeremy Ashford on Sat 8 Feb - 15:17

Fiesta Ware Small Beehive Bowl.
This is just one of our kitchen bowls.
I just noticed it has a shorter top land than our other small beehive (impressed MADE IN NEW ZEALAND) and is consequently slightly smaller (in both height and diameter).

8cm H x 13 OD top (other bowl 8.5 x 13.25)
