Fiesta TimeIntroduced to the world in 1936, Fiesta dinnerware gained mass popularity in the 1980s. What makes this line of everyday dishes so popular? The answer is simply in its vibrant colors, modern design, and affordability. Since the colors become “retired” that is what makes them so collectible.
In the 1970s, there was a resurgence in the popularity of art deco designs from the 1920s and 1930s. Couple this with baby boomers coming into adulthood, the popularity of Fiesta ware took off only for the company to be discontinued. In the 1980s, plates that were once sold at extremely low prices were now fetching hundreds of dollars on secondary markets. Owners of the companies realized this and started up production once again in the mid-1980s offering a redesign and new colors.
With 39 colors in rotation, not only are the new line collectible but older dishes are highly sought after at estate and yard sales.
