Although red may have its radioactive fame and turquoise its rare and nonexistent pieces, it is yellow that can lay claim to being the longest running glaze of the entire vintage fiesta pottery line. Since inception in 1936, to the end of production in 1969, yellow remained the central part of the vintage fiesta rainbow of glazes.
A consistent glaze, with far less inconsistencies that pesky light green, the vintage fiesta yellow seems a true mustard yellow. It is worth noting that the yellow used for harlequin and riviera glaze is not the same and is brighter and shinier, collectors simply refer to the colors as "yellow" for fiesta and "harlequin" yellow for the brighter glaze, which does find it's way onto fiesta shapes, such as the disk juice pitcher and tumblers. (from the happy heidi fiestaware website). Most of my items come out of estates on martha's vineyard and some from other places in new england. The island of martha's vineyard where i have lived for the past 18 years is home to many old original families of sea captains and sailors so fascinating things come up when there are estate sales.
