Fiesta is a line of ceramic glazed dinner ware manufactured and marketed by the Homer Laughlin China Co Fiesta is noted for its Art Deco styling featuring concentric circlesand its range of solid colours. The Homer Laughlin China Company began as Laughlin Pottery in East Liverpool, Ohio. The company was started in 1871 by brothers Shakespeare and Homer Laughlin. Peak production for the company was in 1948 when they produced 10,129,449 dishes.Both Fiesta’s original shapes and its glazes were designed by Frederick Hurten Rhead, Homer Laughlin’s art director from 1927 until his death in 1942. Original Fiesta was a semi-vitreous ware, but when the Fiesta line was re-introduced in 1986, it was decided to manufacture it in a more durable, vitreous composition to allow marketing it to restaurants and institutions as well.
