This mold was also used for the Tom & Jerry bowl, which is why you see a bowl with the Tom & Jerry decal with the familiar Fiesta mold. Tom & Jerry, while also a name for a mug in the Fiesta line, is a traditional Christmas drink that is similar to eggnog.

The footed salad bowl is a slightly more difficult piece to find, since it was produced in lower numbers than other items, and it’s only found in the original six colors. Red and yellow are the hardest to find.
