Despite turquoise being included in the umbrella of “original colors”, it did not debut until a year after the others in 1937.
Red was the first discontinued color, being removed from the factory in 1943.
The flatness of the top inside back is a simple and fool proof way to seperate the old from the new.
(The flatness of the joined handle on the inside of the pot, as shown in the fourth picture above, is noticably different than the indented hole found currently). If there is a raised letter "H" on the bottom it is new, but the absence of the raised H doesn't mean it is positively pre-1986.
These are heavy, durable products and included a variety of kitchenware necessities: mixing bowls, casserole dishes, pie plates, jars, cake plates and platters, spoons, and cake lifters. This collection was independently created and also is known under the name Sheffield Amberstone.
Debuting in 1969, this line came in three core colors: turf green, antique gold, and mango red (which was just a new name for the original Fiesta red). All offerings in this line have a brown glaze, with some having black decoration and a 60th anniversary logo.
But first we’ll start by taking your find and flipping it over.
These tones were produced until 1959 (the same year turquoise and yellow were discontinued).
The last ways to decipher old from new are more involved.
These techniques require closer inspection and a bit of training.
