"Fiesta" tableware Pitcher, 1936
This is a Pitcher. It was designed by Frederick Hurten Rhead and manufactured by Homer Laughlin Pottery Co.. It is dated 1936 and we acquired it in 1991. Its medium is glazed earthenware. It is a part of the Product Design and Decorative Arts department.
Fiesta dinnerware’s simple art deco style and streamlined shapes were compatible with many styles of interior decoration, allowing homemakers to mix and match these designs with other wares already in their cabinets. Rhead’s ceramics introduced bright spots of color to the plainest of tables, making them a success with American consumers.
