Resources About Vintage Fiesta Ware

We have learned a lot about Fiesta Ware from collecting pieces over the years.  However, we learned a lot by shopping, shopping and more shopping, talking to others about Fiesta Ware, talking to antique dealers about it, reading books, and looking up info on the internet.

We’ve also found some information along the way that we’ve liked.  I will periodically add to this list.  Feel free to send suggestions about other good Fiesta resources.

Happy Heidi This site is a great resource for photos and prices of Fiesta.  She also sells Fiesta on her site.  There is also information about Riviera, Harelquin and Rhythm dishes.  Those collections have dishes with similar colors and styles.  Some Fiesta enthusiasts collect some, or all of those dishes as well.  I decided we needed to draw the line somewhere!

There is a great interview on Collector’s Weekly with Heidi Kellner from Happy Heidi.  She gives a great overview on what to look for, how to tell if your Fiesta is vintage, etc.  This is a great starter guide before you decide if you want to invest in any Fiesta.

The Homer Laughlin China Company is also a great site for new Fiesta.  We don’t collect new Fiesta, but I know many people do.

There is even a film documentary called Dishes about collecting Fiesta!

Our favorite book about Fiesta is The Collector’s Encyclopedia of Fiesta, by Bob and Sharon Huxford.  This book is the 10th edition, which was published in 2005.  This book also has lots of pictures and information about Harlequin, Riviera, and Kitchen Kraft lines.

I came across a blog called The Little Round Table.  The author is an avid Fiesta collector, and she has dishes and glassware from other lines as well.  Check out her amazing table settings using Fiesta and other dishes; as well as her extensive collection of vintage table cloths.

I’ll be adding more to this page over time.

    Is there any way to get an e-mail sent to Bob and Sharon Huxford? I think I made a purchase of Fiesta that is rare. Would love to see what they say about it.

    Thanks for any help you can provide.

      Sorry I didn’t see this for a while, I don’t keep up with this old site anymore. I have no idea how to contact Bob & Sharon Huxford. I’d love to know what sort of piece you found! I hope you come back to read this, as you didn’t leave a way to contact you in your reply. You can also email me at:
