A Brief History of Vintage Products

fiesta products

Depending on how you count, there are anywhere from 52-75 different types products during the 1936-1972 run, and they aren’t all available in every color. Most people typically agree that 42 pieces were debuted, although some people say it’s 34 pieces, and others say 36. However many pieces were debuted, the line took off, and approximately twenty new products were added before the end of the thirties (although several products were discontinued as well!)

Some products can only be found in the original six colors, and some can be found in all original eleven colors. Some can only be found in some of the later colors.
