NEWELL, W.Va.-The Homer Laughlin China Company launched a series of collectible Fiesta dinnerware 75th anniversary ornaments at The New York Tabletop Show this week.
The ornaments will be available for purchase by retailers in a pre-packed format; 48 total ornaments will be sold in each package. Nearly half of the package (23 ornaments) will be in the 75th anniversary color, marigold. The remaining half will be divided up among the 11 colors in the Fiesta spectrum; plum, scarlet, tangerine, sunflower, ivory, lemongrass, paprika, turquoise, peacock, cobalt and black; with more ornaments available in the best-selling colors and less availability among the less popular colors.
“We expect several of the less popular colors to be highly collectible among Fiesta enthusiasts,” said Rich Brinkman, vice president of sales and marketing. “As with many of our Fiesta pieces, the more limited the production, the more difficult the item is to find, the more collectible it becomes.”
The ornaments are fully embossed with the 75th anniversary logo, featuring the signature Fiesta dancing lady. They will retail for $15 apiece, or as a gift with a purchase of $75 or more of Fiesta product, according to Homer Laughlin.
