Introducing the Fiesta Soup Tureen!

The current issue of The Dish provides a sneak preview of the Fiesta soup tureen set in MARIGOLD.  The 4-piece set includes the tureen, lid, underplate and ladle.  The underplate has an embossed 75th anniversary Fiesta design and the stainless steel ladle has a ceramic handle.  The production run of this set will be limited 10,000 individually-numbered pieces, only in MARIGOLD.  We love the vintage look of the handles on the tureen and the finial on the lid.

The "official" announcement of the soup tureen set will be made at the International Housewares Show in Chicago, IL in March 2011.  At the same time, MARIGOLD will be announced as the new Fiesta color for 2011.

We gratefully thank HLC for allowing us to share these photos and information with you a little bit early. Now, go make some room to display this fabulous set in your china cabinet!
