- Item Not Available
This is the teacup in the Fiesta line made by the Homer Laughlin China Company from 1936 through 1969. It is in very good condition with no chips, cracks or repairs and it has good red color and glaze. There is a tiny pin point size, inconsequential nick in the glaze only on the upper rim (see photos). The teacup was part of the line from the beginning and continued to be made throughout. The red color was part of the line from the beginning until 1943 when the US Government assumed control of the uranium oxide used in the glaze. In 1959 The Atomic Energy Commission granted a license to Laughlin to again purchase and use the depleted uranium oxide and red was then re-introduced to the line. This vintage Fiesta teacup with no inner rings is not marked and is 2 3/4" high, 3 1/4" in diameter at the top and 4 1/2" across including the handle.
